Atari takes on Wii Fit with floor mat-based Family Trainer game

Filed under:

It looks like Atari is taking a few cues from Nintendo's past in order to take on the hot-selling Wii Fit, with the company's new Family Trainer game employing a Power Pad-style (or DDR-style for you young 'uns) mat controller to give you a workout. That'll apparently let you run and jump your way through more than a dozen mini-games designed to get your heart rate going, including log jumping, rope skipping and water rafting, each of which also make use of the Wiimote for some upper-body action. No word on a price just yet, but it'll apparently be landing in Europe first this September before it (presumably) makes its way over here.

兩輪,但輪胎平行地擺放方式讓它看起來又不像一般機車;有儀表版,但上面就只有一個啟動開關;造型前衛外形酷炫,卻又不是出現在電影的場景裡的動畫作品,而是貨真價實,出現在現實生活中的未來機車:這,就是 Uno。

這部由 Ben J. Poss Gulak 這位十八歲的春風少年兄所設計製作的 Uno,與其說它是部機車,倒不如說是台類似 Segway 的交通工具更為合適。這部身長只有一般機車的一半,重達 54 公斤的機器,裡頭裝設有兩個回轉儀,能夠用來感測騎乘者重心的位置,因此操作這台機器的方式也就變得更為直覺:重心向前 = 加速、向後 = 減速,左右傾斜 = 轉彎。至於採用的燃料種類為何?續航力?以及極速這些問題,目前則尚未有任何公開報導或是測試數據出現。

所以呢,也只能點選引用來源來看到更多的 Uno 照片寫真囉!
