    Would you be interested in a virtual bike training apparatus that straps to your body, knees, feet, etc that then can tracks your cadence, 3D body motion, etc then send it to a graphic output on your PC?

    Rather than sitting on your bike in your living room on the trainer, droning on for hours at a time, wouldnt it be nice to be able to see if you are keeping good form or even to tell you if you THINK you are keeping good form but show your knees all out of whack or something?

    Good idea? Bad idea?

    It already exists - Computrainer/Compufit. I've used it in pedal evaluation and muscle memory conditioning.
