Before I start on this article, I must assure all you readers this is neither a spoof, a late April Fools’ joke nor a project by some rich, bored Korean millionaire. In fact, I am several months late with this news, having just read about it. Introducing the “TERA Bike”, developed by Korean company Amuseway Sportainment. As you can tell from the company’s name, it is merging sports and entertainment together with its products.
TERA is not the only one shown in the video, with even racing games under the compatible list. The latest online title to join the list will be Nexon’s Kart Rider, which you can see in the model design below.
Amuseway Sportainment’s website showcased 3 different models, including the exercise bike, elliptical trainer and treadmill. According to the description, World of Warcraft can be played using the elliptical trainer, similar to TERA. I do not have the prices for all models, but the Kart Rider bike is available at a measly USD 224.70. Is this the next generation of gaming, or a step back compared to motion sensor?
