How to let the kids jet-ski indoors

Virtual water sport provides exercise too.

Our faith in human nature has been restored (for now). Every time we get depressed thinking about technology gone bad , along comes an item that actually does some good.

The "Jet Ski Video Game" is a classic example of a good idea made better. It takes the same general approach as the " Smart Cycle " bike simulator--encouraging kids to get some exercise while playing games--but does it one better, at least where the fun factor is concerned, by creating a virtual water sport.

We're not sure how the aerobic activity compares (bouncing through simulated waves), but its $70 price comes in significantly lower than the Smart Cycle's $100. Besides, as far as bicycling goes, we have this crazy notion that it should take place outside, on a real bike. Go figure.
