The Wii has given new meaning to working-out, taking the heat off your trainers and setting a compact console on fire! But if you’re looking to get a more true-to-life experience when it comes to breaking a sweat, we recommend taking some inspiration from Nick Marsh, who brilliantly hacked his Nike Swooshes and fashioned them to work in synch with the Wii’s console. As Marsh states, “Gaming platforms have made it possible for people to get their own personal sports workout from the comfort of their living room, using hand held controllers and a balance board to participate. So why can’t a pair of Nikes work in the same way?” Read ahead for more details on Marsh’s reinterpretation of this classic sneaker.
