We've finally found the perfect device to complement our Entertrainer workout-motivator (you remember, the device that shuts off your TV if your pulse drops too low): the GameRunner treadmill controller for first-person shooters on your PC. Apparently this rig works with any FPS that would otherwise use keyboard and mouse controls, and replaces the "walk" command with your own leg power. You can control the speed of your on-screen character by walking faster or slower on the treadmill, and other actions like strafe and fire can be mapped to one of several buttons on the handgrip. Since we love video games, and we really love staying buff, we can't think of a single reason why this $500 'mill won't be an immediate addition to our gameroom following its introduction at CES.
