String Walker – using your feet to walk in virtual worlds

Wandering the metaverse is all well and good, but it’s not the healthiest of activities – sitting in your swivel chair or hunched over your laptop for hours on end does not equate to the regimen of exercise a healthy person is supposed to engage in. But there’s good news for those who want to get more exercise without sacrificing precious in-world time –a device called the String Walker, which is a kind of podium interface with a scrolling surface that enables you to walk around in a virtual world by actually, y’know, walkingg. It’ll probably be a pricey piece of kit when (if?) it hits the market, but that’s no problem – you can just pay for it with your World of Warcraft credit card and earn extra game time in the process!
