Reading from an electronic display is difficult for people while performing cardiovascular activities or while riding in a moving vehicle. Run-n-Read, a cool clip-on device, makes reading possible in such dynamic scenarios. Run-n-Read can be used with most cardiovascular workout machines, such as treadmills, elliptical trainers, stepmills, stairmasters, and stationary bikes. It can also help reduce eye strain while riding in a train, bus, or car.
How It Works
The device tracks your head movements and then moves the text on the screen in real time to always be in sync with your eyes. Though a person standing nearby can see the text jumping up and down, for the person wearing the device the text would appear perfectly still. Your head moves, but the words do not!
It's packed with sophisticated electronics - an accelerometer, a low-power micro-controller, and a low energy Bluetooth module - to provide the best experience. It also features a rechargeable battery with a micro-USB port (20 hours of use time and 1 month of standby time).
Run-n-Read comes with a free mobile application and is compatible with all new generation iOS and Android devices. You can now read your favorite book or catch up on global, local or social news while working out.
Run-n-Read also comes with its own gesture recognition system! Simply tap the device once to turn the page forward, or tap twice to go back a page. And yes, this smart device can also act as a simple fitness tracker helping you keep your weight in check. Just clip it to your belt or shirt and start measuring the steps and calories burned. It syncs with your iOS or Android device to display your physical activity level and also compares it with your weekly average.
