Gamespy Preview Active Life: Outdoor Challenge for Wii
"Many years ago, Bandai attempted to get lazy NES players up off of their sofas by introducing Family Fun Fitness, a sensor-filled plastic mat that plugged into the NES system and forced kids to run and jump on it in order to control their games. Nintendo liked the idea so much that the company licensed the mat from Bandai and re-released it as the Power Pad. Nowadays Nintendo may have moved on to the Wii Balance Board, but Bandai (well, Namco Bandai) is keeping the concept of the Power Pad alive."
