Get Fit in a Parallel Universe

For those who would rather do anything else than exercise, the VirZOOM stationary bike could be the fitness ticket.

It takes exercise to another dimension with a virtual-reality headset, an accessory that enables you to go on a fitness adventure with unique games settings that challenge endurance such as a car race or flying above treetops and rolling hills.

VirZOOM, which is a startup, will retail for $250 when it launches in 2016 and will be compatible with three forthcoming virtual-reality headsets (price to be determined)—the Oculus Rift, Sony PlayStation VR and HTC Vive—all of which track head movements to make the leaning motion translate into movement within the game.
