Dance mat , also known as a dance pad or dance platform, is a special kind of input device for video games, as a kind of Video games accessories ,it meant to be danced upon. Dance mat is a good aerobic exercise, as it is indoors, don’t limited by weather and time,those like to play computer games are more suitable for practice. Dance mat games are very simple to play. When the game starts, listening to the music, look at the bottom of the screen, up,down, left and right arrow will continue to appear, as long as the arrow box move to the the position of the top where arrow coincides , players pedal to the corresponding place with the foot .
It is essentially a video game controller, but instead of being operated by the hands, is operated by the feet while lying on the ground and jumped on. Most dance pads are divided into a 3×3 matrix of square panels for the player to stand on, with some or all of the panels corresponding to directions or actions within the game. The dance mat is used in a number of dance games, of which the best known is the popular Dance Dance Revolution game, sometimes referred to simply as DDR.
Dance Dance Revolution, or DDR, is a video game driven by the player’s feet. It was first introduced by Konami as a video arcade game in Japan in 1998, and many variations have been produced, some even for home use. It is classified as a Bemani game (Bemani is a Japanese-style shorthand term for Beatmania, the name of Konami’s first musical game, which has come to refer to all of Konami’s musical games).Now,many more video games has input the DDR,such as Wii DDR Mat .
Playing DDR can be good aerobic exercise; some regular players have reported weight loss of 10-50 pounds. One player reports that including DDR in their day-to-day life resulted in a loss of 95 pounds. It is argued however that the cases of significant weight loss have all been stories where a significantly overweight player loses a few pounds, and then becomes motivated to take action to lose weight, including dieting, and regular gym attendance. Although reports of weight loss have not been scientifically measured, some schools use DDR as a physical education activity, and in Norway, DDR has even been registered as an official sport.So,in my opinion,among so many of the wholesale video games,DDR is a good for you.
