Random: Introducing The Labo Fit Adventure Kart Kit, A “Total-Body” Exercise For Switch

Hardware hacker Mike Choi is at it again with another crazy invention. This time it’s a new Switch “total-body” exercise program called Labo Fit Adventure Kart. It mashes together Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Ring Fit Adventure, Nintendo Labo, and an exercise bike to create a grueling but highly entertaining video game workout.

This kit allows you to control your kart’s acceleration by pedaling, and to turn and shoot items you’ll have to rotate and squeeze the Ring-Con. Below is a quick look, along with Mike’s motivation behind this creation:

“Like many people, I find seeking the motivation to exercise impossibly difficult. That’s why this year, I decided the only way I’m going to get fit is by combining exercise with Mario Kart. So I designed and built an entire system of custom accessories and sensors to allow me to control Mario Kart while exercising!”

The same kit can also be used with other games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but good luck winning a fight (see 08:27).

The remainder of the video above is allocated to the construction of the device. Mike also went to the extent of creating his very own amiibo, although it doesn’t actually do anything. At least it looks neat!

Mike Choi is best-known within the Nintendo community as the creator of the Flip Grip. You can read all about this nifty peripheral in our full hardware review.
