Ergo Bike Premium 8i
The web-enabled Ergo Bike Premium 8i has the potential for making those boring indoor cycling workouts more fun. If you're still running on your treadmill, or biking for hours in front of the TV (not that there's anything wrong with that), you might be up for adding a little challenge into your workout routine.
With the Ergo Bike Premium 8i, you can have a race right in the middle of your livingroom - or wherever else you have space to set up your bike - and compete with other livingroom-bikers around the world on virtual representations of real life courses. During the race you can keep track of your competitors on a map; monitor their heart rates, and if you still have enough oxygen for it, speak to them via VOIP. If you feel really bold and self-confident, a web cam will allow you to see and be seen by the other racers. Finally, the built-in MP3 player lets you listen to your favorite tunes while racing your ass off … I mean not even professional bikers get to have that!
Developed by German manufacturer Daum Electronics, the Ergo Bike has been designed to perfectly mimic the performance of a real bike and can be yours starting at around € 1,500.
