The concept of exertainment is finding its roots in the Inland Empire, as the XRtainment Zone in Redlands is finally open for people to check out.
In case there are some of you who don’t know quite what exertainment is, it’s essentially using games to promote and provide exercise. Think “Dance Dance Revolution” or Sony’s “EyeToy Kinetic.” I mentioned the XRtainment zone and one of its founders, Ernie Medina, in a story I did a while back on exertainment. The grand opening for the facility is Sept. 14.
The Zone has been in the making for at least a year now, and if you want some more insight into it’s journey, you can check out this blog.
