An inventor designs a kit to play sports … while playing Mario Kart

How to exercise while playing Mario Kart on Switch? Inventor Mike Choi found the solution by making an original kit that you can see in action in the video below:

To achieve his goals, Mike Choi designed the TAPBO module, a wireless robot whose function is to press two of the buttons on the console’s Joy-Con. The TAPBO module communicates with a connected exercise bike. When the player exceeds a certain speed while pedaling, the module presses the acceleration button on the Joy-Con. If the player goes back below the speed limit, then the button is released.

The TAPBO also detects when the player deforms the Ring-Con hoop – originally used in the game Ring Fit Adventures– by pressing on the sides. He then presses the button that activates objects in the game. The Ring-Con also serves as a steering wheel to steer the kart.

The small TAPBO module easily attaches to the Ring hoop and can even be used in other games, although the demo with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (see 8:28 in the video) is not very convincing.
