BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., March 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Been bored on the treadmill? Spinning just not that much fun? Volo is working to fix that with the YUBE at http://www.edggs.com. The YUBE plays video (scenic travel or competitive racing) to the speed of your exercise. The iPhone® or iPod Touch® is attached to your arm (walking or running) or leg (biking), the application senses your body speed and uses that to control the speed of the video. The faster you go the faster you go through the video.
Up until AirPlay® was released the YUBE needed to be connected to your TV or projector to display your exercise video -- now with AirPlay® and an Apple TV® you can be anywhere in the room and beam your video right to your TV or projector without wires, no encumbrances whatsoever.
"We were designing a wireless link for the YUBE, it was getting costly and complicated. Apple's release of AirPlay® for video is a leapfrog technology for us and our users," said Tim Sefton - President of Volo - designers of the YUBE.
The YUBE plays videos, from around the world, both competitive and scenic, and plays them on a large screen TV or projector, timed to the speed of your exercise. The faster you go, the faster you go though the video. The YUBE senses the motion of the exerciser's body and translates that into speed. The YUBE works with exercise bikes, treadmills, rowing machines, stepping machines, spinning bikes, anything that is stationary exercise.
