This blog is typically dedicated to security topics however I thought I would share about two cool gadgets I’ve been using to a live healthier lifestyle. Check them out and make 2013 a healthier year for you.
I love playing soccer but HATE running as a form of exercise. The problem I have is my mind concentrates on how uncomfortable I feel. I can run for miles on the soccer field but not around the neighborhood.
Zombies, Run! makes running fun. It’s an iPhone / Android app that puts you in the middle of a Zombie apocalypse. There are too many Zombies to shoot so “runners” like you have to go out and gather supplies without weapons. You start a mission and run like your normally would wearing headphones and listening to music. The app plays music off your mobile device playlist and periodically interrupts with radio transmissions from an operator updating you on your mission status. You also pick up virtual supplies while running to bring back to base. Your actual running route doesn’t matter however the distance and pace determines how you do. You can also use this app on a treadmill.
That’s all cool however the real fun is randomly Zombies will chase you. Zombies, Run! uses your GPS to track your speed and warns you to run faster as zombies approach. You start hearing Zombies moaning over your music as they get close which really makes you push yourself. The app will start beeping when Zombies are nearby and prompt you every mile about your pace.
