Does anyone know what this is?

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.

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
Looks kinda like a DDR game.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
