The headline of this article is a bit misleading; the Wii - for whenever I might find one on the shelf for purchasing, as that hunt continues - is far more realistic in the realm of purchasing. However, I can see the awesome health benefit and would love to have a Virtusphere. Imagine a human-sized hamster ball propped up on a stand that allows it to roll in any direction without moving, and you've just imagined the Virtusphere.
However, their website says absolutely nothing about purchasing one online or through any kind of store (at least from initial glance, that's what I got), so it's probably one of those "If you have to ask, you can't afford it" kind of prices.
As much as a holodeck would be really, really cool; this is probably going to be the closest thing to it that we'll get in this lifetime.
