Virtual Reality , more then just goggles.
One needn’t be lazy to not be able to use this device. For instance, I have terrible arches and calves. Walking for too long cripples me, though I can manage a gym’s treadmill at low speeds while gripping the supports. Kneeling is muscle spasm pain in seconds.
I’ve read of players who are missing limbs, who only have use of one hand, etc. They’d also have issues with this without being at all lazy.
My point is that yes, that does look like an awesome way to play games for those physically fit enough. But suggesting the rest of us are “lazy” for needing more sedentary methods is an unnecessary insult that derailed my attention from your actual concept.
(Also I don’t think the game can readily be adapted to this sort of thing without a huge rework, but as I don’t work for ANet ankitten ot a computer programmer I’ll leave it to the devs to confirm/deny that argument).
Please excuse me. I never ment to imply that anyone who wouldn’t use this is lazy. I am sure that there are many reasons for not using one. Being lazy is completely different from physically being unable. To me being lazy is being able to but not willing to. As such, the title and my words were aimed at those who wanted to or needed to get exercise but also wanted to play gw2, or at least have something to do while taking what might otherwise be a boring hot and sweaty walk.
I myself am able to walk and if I had motivation I would walk if it was at night so I wouldn’t need a hat and sunglasses for my eyes. Alas, other then walking during work or shopping I don’t have many reasons or whishes to walk. With this however, I thing I would walk before sitting down to tap. After all, this would be more fun then workout equipment that can cost more less or equal to the estimated price for this item depending on how (good) the workout equipment is. Truly, I would rather get this then a piece of equipment that will probably never get used.
I imagine any rework can be done on a separate platform that would be able to integrate movements into hot keys. Doing it that way would allow more then just gw2 to be able to use this device.
