It’s one thing to experience an elevated heart rate while playing a nerve-fraying survival horror game like, say, Fatal Frame. It’s another thing entirely to get your ticker working overtime to such tame fare as Tak 2: The Staff of Dreams.

But thanks to The Oceana Trading Company, your little brothers and sisters may soon be doing just that, courtesy of the UK company’s Step2Play exercise machine.

The Step2Play is essentially a mini-stairmaster that connects to your PlayStation or PS2. The machine sets and monitors a target exercise rate and pauses your game indefinitely when you fall below the target. The machine is intended for children 7-11 years old and was designed to get kids to get active, in an effort to combat the increasing problem of childhood obesity.

It’s part of a growing trend in game peripherals, and one that fitness guru, Tony Little, he of glorious ponytail and The Gazelle fame, would surely approve of. In case you missed it, Mr. Little and his golden locks recently joined X-Play to help put G4’s Web Team through an exhaustive, comprehensive evaluation with several leading exercise peripherals.

Here’s the video:
