A new study has shown that the jOG controller for the Nintendo Wii makes players exercise. The study shows that using the controller for one hour to play a typical Nintendo Wii game involves taking 6,000 to 10,000 steps.

The government recommends that adults take 10,000 steps per day to remain healthy. The jOG controller also more than triples energy expenditure and increased heart rate by 40% compared to playing a game seated.

The jOG controller was launched earlier this year and is an add on controller for the Wii that detects body motion and moves a game character when the player takes a step. The controller is compatible with many existing Wii games.
