Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9850121A1] An interactive exercise pad system (10) receives exercise data (108) from a user (24) stepping on and off of an exercise pad (12). The exercise data (108) is optionally pre-processed in a data acquisition unit (14), before being communicated to a communications port (30) of a computer (16). The computer (16) obtains data files (82) which have been prestored on media (80). The data files (82) include video files (84), optional audio files (86), and table files (88) of location and terrain information. The video files (84) and the table files (88) are collected from a real exercise course. The computer (16) processes the exercise data (108) and the data files (82) to playback the video files (84) and the optional audio files (86) so that the user (24) experiences a realistic simulation of the real exercise course.
