I was the only one I ever saw use it, and I didn't know how to ice skate at the time (it was just something cool to work different muscles for me). It sort of looked like the pedals for those skiing arcade games that were popular about that time, and you could adjust the resistance as you skated.

Haven't seen a machine like it since.
Sounds like the same concept as a slide board (minus the ability to adjust the resistance).
