Doko Demo Pilates follows you everywhere

Konami's Doko Demo Pilates is shaping up nicely -- oh man did you see what we did there -- providing nice graphical demonstrations of exercise moves along with textual explanations, and just generally being pleasant, like you would expect of an exercise program. We don't really know how to gauge exercise programs, since our personal experience starts and ends with NES Dance Aerobics. It seems to us that the controllable interface, which allows you to move through text and video, and the game's emphasis on highlighting the specific areas worked by each exercise, allows the game to include more information, accessible in a more convenient way, than most other media could. You know what to do, why you're doing it, and you can rewind and watch the move as many times as you need.

Konami is taking the "doko demo" ("anywhere") in the game's title to heart, as evidenced by this screenshot of an exercise move done in a bathtub. You are never safe from Pilates with this cartridge around! Pilates can find you wherever you go.

Friday Video: Konami Say Relax


We were unable to embed this week's video for you, but we just ... can't seem to get too upset about it. It must be all the inner peace we're feeling. We suggest you head over to Konami's Dokodemo Yoga page and watch the introductory video for yourself. It's hard to miss-- just click "play movie."

Let the soothing music wash over you. It's no problem if you don't know Japanese. The narration will just be relaxing white noise for you. Just let the week's stresses dissipate. Maybe have some tea. Not being yoga practitioners ourselves, we have no idea if it's actually calming, but the video sure is.
