Heart Burn is a multiplayer computer-aided exercise game. Two players compete to drive their trucks over a twisting course.
We have created two versions of Heart Burn, one using a standard speed control (where pedaling speed and gear control in-game speed), and the other using a scaled heart rate control. Our goal with the scaled heart rate control is to narrow the difference between players with different fitness levels.

This information, along with caloric burn rate, heart rate and more, will be displayed on a 19-inch flat-screen LCD monitor in order to help provide the user with real-time exercise feedback.
A readout of workout metrics is nothing particularly new in the world of fitness equipment. Nexersys takes the metrics to a new level by including sophisticated interactive software with sound. This software uses the monitor to help guide exercisers through a carefully calibrated series of follow-me programs. These exercises are supplemented with unlimited number
