When it comes to the world of gaming, there is no doubt, the industry is not only booming, it likely will only continue to become more and more lucrative. Everybody likes to play video games, whether they enjoy playing games on their XBox, Play Station, Table or even smartphone, and while this is great news for the gaming industry, it’s not so great news for the physical health of our (and our children’s) bodies. We, as a society need to be more active, we need to move more, if we want to live long, healthy and fulfilling lives.
But how do we do this? People aren’t going to stop gaming. So a new solution is needed. Luckily, one company recognized this need and has created a unique device that allows gaming and physical exercise to be combined into one: meet Cycelpath Pedaling!
What Is Cyclepath Pedaling?
A unique and fun new way to get your kid (or even yourself), moving.
Cyclepath Pedaling is a unique device that combines the physical activity of cycling with gaming. Using Bluetooth, Cyclepath Pedaling connects to your phone or tablet and creates an interactive experience when one is playing one of the various games offered on CyclePath2Life.com. For example, when playing the Bike&Hill game, the Cyclepath will automatically adjust the difficulty level of pedaling, so that it is harder to go uphill and easier to go down. Additionally, Cyclepath Pedaling powers itself using the energy generated from pedaling and even allows you to charge your connected gaming device via a USB port so you never have to worry about our phone dying while you play.
What’s more, this device is also portable and can be played literally anywhere there is a chair. Use it in the living room, bedroom, at the kitchen table or even take it in the car! Plus, your stats (including: heart rate, calories used, speed, difficulty levels, the distance of the ride and time of play), will be available to you via email, so you can easily track yours or your child’s progress and level of activity.
Why do I need one?
The device actually adjusts the difficulty level when peddling uphill in the game!
Pretty much everyone at some point or another wants to find a way to fit more physical activity into our lives, and this is a fun and entertaining way to do that. Without having to leave your home, you can enjoy an invigorating bike ride while completing challenges along the way and adding to the fun. Moreover, if you are a parent looking for a way to engage your child in more than just the world of video games and actually get them moving, this is an excellent option. They will still get to play their games, and you will be happier because at least they are getting exercise in at the same time! Plus, as mentioned above, you can closely monitor their progress, activity level and actual screen time via the included emails detailing all of this and more!
In short, this is an excellent option for combining the favorite of activities today (e.g. gaming), with something that is not only good for you and/or your child, but will also make you actually feel better and live a healthier life in the long run (e.g. exercise). Oh, and we almost forgot to mention, this is a great device for those going through physical therapy as well!
Where can I get one?
Super portable and easy to move around your home, or take with you on the go.
You can secure your very own Cyclepath Pedaling Device on Cycelepath Pedling’s Kickstarter page. Reasonably priced — especially when takes into account the price of other gaming systems — this portable exercise and gaming device will be delivered to backers, come February of 2020. Just in time for Valentine’s day!
