How to keep fit and use a computer at the same time.

So you spend your entire day sitting at computer tappign away not gettign enough exercise. Well I have the answer for you replace your keyboard with an eye toy , a ddr mat and a pair of Samba de Amigo maracas.
So your wondering how you can then type with this well think of it as chords.
So for example for an 'a':
up on the ddr
right hand strecthed out to left to be picked up by the eye toy.
one shake on the left hand maracas

so a move like this for every key on the key board and say for instance a double shake for shift obvioulsy not every key need be so complicated.

There are however several problems with this.
1) Companies will need to buy more powerful aircon. A room full of sweaty geeks isnt good
2) Code will probably become a lot shorter and only really fit people will bother with comments.
3) you can probably only do it for short bursts.
