This is the newly announced Fisher Price Smart Cycle, it has just been showcased at the CES 2017 (Consumer Technology Association for those who are not techy).

We all know how obsessed kids are with smartphones and tablets. Most would spend all of the waking day on them if they could. I don’t blame them, the games are designed to keep their attention and be fun and intriguing. At least using this they would get some exercise at the same time. It is aimed at kids 3-6 years old.

It can be linked to a TV or a tablet via bluetooth with additional games available to buy.  To move in the game the kids have to cycle to move forward or cycle backwards to reverse.

The aim of this Tech is to educate kids while they keep active. With the slogan “The more kids pedal, the more they can learn!’

Whatever happened to fresh air and interacting with people?
