    Why no android support? Why? Napaka-stupid naman ng dev nito para hindi i-support yung android, tsk. Maganda to para sa paglalaro ko ng Nova 3 sa android tab ko habang nagpapahinga ako sa car aircon repair business ko. Why support Windoze?
    Hope will be a flop ‘coz it does not support Android, the real professional OS.

      do you know why it is not android supported?its because this game peripheral is only for “serious” gaming like CoD,etc. not for your games like candy crush =) and they target “professional” gamers not those people who are just contented playing their games in a crappy tablet computer

    • I agree with Wew. It’s not for casual gaming. Right now it would not make sense to support games from Android. Maybe in the future? And I think it’s not right to wish for a product to become a flop just because it doesn’t support the OS or games that you want. The developers put a lot of work into this, and I really wish that they become super successful!

  4. This technology is freaking awesome! I love game technologies that encourage me to move around more. That’s why when Kinect came out, I had to absolutely buy it. :) The guys (including Locker Gnome) in the video are so lucky to get the chance to play with this. I think the only problem with this is that it takes quite a lot of space. It’s like having a treadmill in your house. But all in all, freaking awesome technology!

    nguan ko lang naisip pede rin pala tong ipampalit sa mga treadmill na ginagamit sa gym at sa bahay considering na low-to-zero maintenance siya dahil walang moving parts \m/
