VIDEO GAME NEWS: UBISoft Yourshape to feature Body Tracking Tech.

UbiSoft Your Shape

Do we really want to use Video Games to keep us Fit? I say no, but the success of Nintendo’s WiiFit says otherwise. Ubisoft recently announced that the company will be releasing Your Shape(TM), a ground-breaking new fitness title that leverages the technological advances of an entirely new, revolutionary camera for the Wii(TM) system from Nintendo. Your Shape is scheduled to be released worldwide this Holiday 2009. Your Shape is the first fitness game that comes with a camera peripheral included inside the box. Featuring Ubisoft’s proprietary Body Tracking technology, the game will scan your body and then project the image onto the TV, creating a personalized and interactive workout.

Based on your specific body shape analysis, fitness level and personal goals, Your Shape is able to recommend the workout program that is best suited for you.

The game also features a virtual coach that provides verbal and visual feedback on all of your movements, ensuring that each minute invested achieves maximum results. Always by your side, the coach motivates you to reach your goals.  Because Your Shape has more exercises than any other fitness game, the workout routine is always fresh and exciting.  Best of all, Your Shape allows you to get these benefits without holding a controller, leaving your hands free to incorporate any equipment that you may already own, without any excess bands or straps.  The camera and Body Tracking technology follow your progress, showing you the tangible results of your hard work.
