Exercise equipment has tried for years to incorporate games and entertainment, but they've never hit the mark. That's why we made Dreadmill. Using an Oculus Rift, Dreadmill allows you to race through a Unity-built game world full of the undead while in real life beating your love handles on a modified, Arduino-controlled treadmill. A Myo armband adds even more interactivity, letting you fire on baddies during your aerobic workout. Dreadmill intends to prove that exercise and gaming aren't mutually exclusive, and to showcase the great leaps forward that have been made in virtual reality. So, strap in, load up, and get ready to run for your life!
