Good Luck With That, Microsoft

"Physical data that reflects a degree of health of the real person can be linked to rewards of capabilities of a gaming avatar, an amount of time budgeted to play, or a visible indication. Thereby, people are encouraged to exercise."

I'm assuming that this is a Natal application that would scan your actual body to use as your avatar - which would then apparently inform you that you are too fat and shut down your Xbox.

Actually, I would personally use this. I've gained a couple of pounds from holiday comestibles and marathon Modern Warfare 2 sessions. I'm halfway through finishing off the prestige levels, so you should once again see a more rigorously updated website and a slimmer, return-to-exercising Dee shortly. Thus are declared my resolutions.

Good luck with that, me.
