Exercise = subway ticket

To promote exercise and the 2014 Olympics, a very special ticket machine has been installed at the Moscow subway station.

Instead of accepting money as payment, the high-tech ticket machine only accepted exercise. Riders could receive a free ticket by standing in front of the machine’s camera, and performing 30 squats. The idea is to get people active and amped for the games.

If you could do a little bit of exercise in exchange for a train ticket, would you?
