1. The server transfer is complete, but there is a known issue occurring with posts lagging when they are sent! We apologize for the inconvenience. A fix is underway, so please bear with us.

    UPDATE: The issue with post lag appears to be fixed, but the search system is temporarily down, as it was the culprit. It will be back up later!

Does anyone know what this is?

  1. So I was walking around campus the other day, and while glancing in the adjoining gym I noticed this device. It was scrolling the words "PLAY WITH ME" across the lit up LED floor there.

    So I did the most natural thing, and took a picture of it to post it on the internet for people I've never met in person to evaluate the identity of.
    Of course.
     
  2. Looks kinda like a DDR game.
     
  3. Rave practice machine.
     
  4. Obviously it's a platform for a threesome.

    Jokes aside, I believe that, along with the others, that it's got to be related to footwork.
     
  5. Considering it's in a gym, and considering it's placement in the gym (surrounded by cardio machines), I'll assume it's one of two things:

    A fancy run-in-place, step-where-the-lights-are styled "game" that works your cardio, or a very fancy version of DDR. That's not DDR.
     
  6. Probably has something to do with zumba or just dancing in general.

    Why not have a try at it next time you walk by? :P
     
  7. It's a Rubik's Cube for your feet.

  9. Well that was a pain in the butt to find...

    Spendy little bugger too...

  10. So...

    ...

    It's a very, very expensive Wii Sports + Fitness?
     
  11. DON'T STEP ON IT! IT'S GOING TO COPY YOUR DNA AND FORM A CLONE ARMY!
     
  12. In a nutshell... yes... Also with some DDR mixed in... and the ability to get lightshows...

    Also comes in a variety of sizes... and a wall mounted version as well.
     
  13. It looks really neat, though. I kinda wanna play with it. .__.
     
  14. Weell, the rest of the answers were mostly hilarious or fun, though Woodrat gave exactly what it was, which sates my curiosity..dang that's expensive.

    I would give it a try, but students still have to pay for gym memberships, I don't have one, and it's near the end of the semester, soooo....yeah. I think it might also be in a room blocked off from regular gym usage, like for particular classes or something--no-one was in there when I took the picture, at around lunchtime, as you can see.

    My good fellow, I think you should sidestep this tedious gym registry process, and take the contraption for yourself. Perhaps by using a complex system of mirrors.
