Swim in the family room? Michael Phelps Push the Limit for Xbox Kinect

Techstination feature for Friday, February 11, 2011

      Going for a swim in the family room.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     Well maybe it’s not exactly going for a swim in the family room, but 505 Games has announced an upcoming title for the Xbox Kinect in partnership with Olympic champion swimmer Michael Phelps.     Michael Phelps: Push the Limit will arrive in June and says 505 Games VP Peter Matiss…

Well in a nutshell, Michael acts as your mentor.   As someone who basically teaches you the core mechanics to swim strokes.   And you basically move from a club framework where you’re a fledgling swimmer and basically swim your way to the very top, where ultimately you’re actually swimming against Michael Phelps himself.”

You’ll simulate diving and pushing off for turns and the various strokes with your arms.    You can see a trailer at   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
