So, anybody know how to hack a “dance mat”? I’ve seen a bunch of games with this type of input device where you jump up and down on it – my kids even had a simple little “Strawberry Shortcake And Friends Dance Party” one if I recall.
Take one of those and build a game up around it where instead of dancing to music, you’re typing like you would on a cell phone.
Improve your spelling, your accuracy…your appreciation of classic literature. A game could be made out of it, where you have to answer questions but instead of jumping to A-D you have to spell out the answer.
I would totally buy that. Somebody, if they haven’t already, needs to make a generic “dance mat” controller for Wii or something (balance board does not count!) that games can be written to. Or maybe even a USB one so you can use it on the PC?
