Locked out of “God mode,” runners are hacking their treadmills

quote [ NordicTrack customers were watching Netflix—until the company blocked their access. ]

Then fuckin' slide around like on a NordicTrack

Why would anyone buy one of these when they can just put any treadmill in front of a TV?

Because they have too much money

Just like you said, put it in front of a TV, or get a tablet nearby. I have an old boxy TX with a cathode TV that we use with a Roku device. That's all I need.

For that sort of money I'd rather buy one of those omnidirection VR treadmills, so instead of watching netflix I could spend my time be ing chased by guards in Skyrim.

Quite probably, or maybe I found it independently.

That’s the one where the treadmill reviewer said that sprinting in VR away from the guards in Skyrim was one of the most surprisingly terrifying experiences in his life?
