We received a question from a reader, Steve, yesterday and thought it was interesting to reply to him here. The question was regarding whether we know of any use of the new Wii gadget – jOG other than just for in gameplay (we believe he meant things such as hacks and mods).

If you stop, then your character within the game (for example, if you were playing Shrek) stops moving… thus you die – that’s no fun! It may not sound very fun, but for those who really need the exercise will bound to shred loads of weight just doing this.
jOG also has a pedometer attached so it counts how many steps you’ve done, I’m pretty sure you’d be amazed how many steps will have been taken in order to play a few minutes of Wii. Watch the video after the jump…
Let’s face it, us geeks are not terribly fit. We’re really good at sitting in front of the computer, while our fingers and hands may be hard at work, not really any other part of our body is! So maybe this could help us out. Chris Hall from Pocket-lint have got a list of gadgets here which are not just fun gadgets in its own right but also provides ways (application) in which their technology could possibly help get us fit again.
I know quite alot of our readers here have the iPhone, the StepTrak Lite app from the App Store is free and is basically a pedometer on your iPhone. It’s not bad at all for those who may want to start ‘lite’ with some gentle walking first 🙂 , it’s free so why not give it a go?
Here’s a screenshot of StepTrak Lite:
