Android-Powered Exercise Bike? It Could Happen [VIDEO] [CES 2011]


I ran into the folks at Touch Revolution at this year’s CES. Their product? Displays. Nothing to get up in arms about, right? They created a couple of concept devices, though, which I now find myself really wanting to see come to reality. The biggest of which was an exercise bike with a nicely-sized display running Android. Loaded onto it was a custom interface for setting up all of your workout settings and information, as well as a pretty decent selection of apps. Imagine riding your bike while looking at Facebook, watching YouTube, or listening to Pandora.

The theme at this year’s CES – at least for everything that wasn’t a cell phone – was making things smarter. Smart TVs, smart cars, smart appliances. We’ll be seeing more of the same through 2011 and I think it’ll go full blast in 2012. At least for the smaller guys, Android seems to be the perfect software component to help apply “smart” to everything else. Take a look at the thing in action above. Note: the bike doesn’t interface with Android in this video. It’s only a concept.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
