I had seen the adverts for this and was impressed and pleased that my bloke bought this for me so I dont know how much it was. I looked on amazon recently for this and its about £30.
The ubisoft camera is white and it is small and looks good, the lead is very long, I have my wii on the bottom shelf on tv stand and I wind some of the lead back up so its not too long. Plug the camera into the USB port on the wii and put the camera on top of tv. My wii sensor is at the bottom of my TV as it wont balance on top -I have a flat screen. I didn't want my camera stuck on my tv when not using it so I found a prism shape of plastic and then attached the slot part of the camera onto this, so this goes onto my tv.
When you start you input your weight, height etc and then the camera 'scan's you' and shows a representation of yourself on the screen. It recommends what area you need to focus on or you can set your own, initially I set it for my legs and to burn (you can burn or strength). You can change what area you want to focus on every time you start a workout anyway. The trainer asks how your feeling today you can say your ready to go, so far I have only said that she's lucky I am here. This is because it is hard going -well for me anyway. You can also add hand weights and other workout equipment. I have been using this for about a week and a half and have already seen improvements in my weight.
Then you begin, yourself is on the right and the personal trainer is on the left and she does start exercising straight away but it is easy to follow her. Everyso often it checks your movements to make sure your following correctly and if not she calls things out like watch your arms and then lets you know when you've got it right. I found that on one of the excercises when I was lying down I had to move around a bit so that it recognised my leg movements. On the screen it shows your calories burning as well as counting down the time which is good, rest intervals are given which is counting down so make sure you have some water to hand for the breaks.
You can set a workout for 15mins or longer I excercise 30minutes either 2 or 3 times a week as I also have wii fit plus which I use as well. Once your finished your results are displayed letting you know your levels.
The reason for the 4 stars is because it misses your body movements occasionally.
Summary: A good idea and this has worked for me, I have a large living room which helps
