There's plenty of ways to use the Switch to get some exercise. Nintendo and other companies have released software to get you up and moving, and they're all selling quite well. Still though, there's some people who want to get active when playing more traditional games, rather than exergames.

Hardware hacker Mike Choi decided to come up with his own solution to this problem, which resulted in the creation of the Labo Fit Adventure Kart Kit. This custom creation allows Mike to use an exercise bike to play all sorts of games, including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Motion controls provide some Mario Kart 8 Deluxe quite a bit of movement while playing, but Mike's exercise bike controller takes things to a completely different level!
