New samurai-themed pedometer lets you pretend you’re a foot soldier

Sengoku_a

On July 18, Bandai is releasing a new toy that has a noble theme and an exercise function. It’s a pedometer and calorie counter with a samurai-era storyline &mdash you choose to be a character out of three famous daimyo from the Sengoku, or Warring States Period (circa 1500s) and take your foot soldiers out to the battlefield. Of course, the more you walk, the closer you will get to attaining full control of Japan.
