Sphery Racer

The Sphery Racer is the first ExerCube game experience. The audio-visual appearance and theme of the fitness game setting were inspired by individual wishes and preferences of digital natives aged 18-50 years.

The virtual game scenario takes the player on a rapid sci-fi themed underwater race. The player navigates an avatar on a hoverboard, speeding along a racing track and passing by various motor-cognitive challenging obstacles.

To ensure a maximum attractive and effective workout experience for everybody, game difficulty and complexity are continuously adapted to the player’s individual fitness and cognitive skills during the ExerCube session.

The game can be played as single player or as cooperative or competitive multiplayer in a shared and in multiple ExerCubes.

Play duration and modes are flexibly adjustable. The player also receives an individual training evaluation after each ExerCube session.

Training Concept



The Sphery Racer is controlled with full-body functional workout movements. Functional training is well known for its overall training effects of increasing endurance, strength, and flexibility. It has been defined as demanding multiple muscle and joint activities, combining upper and lower body movements, and utilizing more of the body in each movement.

The additional cognitive challenge, which is conveyed to the player by various audio-visual and game mechanical signals, makes the Sphery Racer a holistic body and brain training.

A customized motion tracking system transfers the player’s movements to the avatar on the virtual racing track. Players further wear a heart rate sensor during the training session.

In the near future, we will offer further experiences featuring new game scenarios and training concepts and will also provide movement therapy-specific ExerCube settings as well as a version for at home.
