Let’s get real for a moment: the pandemic has inexorably altered large swaths of what we once knew of as our “normal lives.” And one of the biggest impacted parts has been fitness, with many gyms closing for months on end and some never opening again. Well, for those that have shifted to in-home exercise, one pretty effective way of keeping up the habit is gamifying your workouts, which just got even easier thanks to Quell.

Quell comes in two parts. First, there’s a wearable rig that looks a bit like an exoskeleton, but it’s actually an interactive haptic controller that offers customizable resistance (courtesy of its attached bands), motion tracking, and low-latency connectivity. The controller also pairs with a video game, a stylized adventure experience, that reacts to your movements on-screen, combining to offer an intense full-body boxing workout disguised as gaming. With constant updates, optional multiplayer (online and in-person), and constant updates, Quell could be a game-changing home fitness experience for some. Get it soon for just $249.

Purchase: $249
