About

Exercise bikes stands are used for getting in shape. However the training process often becomes boring because one has to pedal monotonously for a long period of time. 

We came up with an idea to make this process exciting and entertaining. The core idea is to turn the training process into a game. 

Special sensors are attached to your bike's pedals which along with buttons on the bike's handles transmit signals directly to a game running on your mobile phone or tablet. It may be a race or space travel or something else.

It is SUITABLE FOR ANY STATIONARY BIKE!

Playbike kit includes:

  • Sensors
  • Buttons (controls)
  • Games designed for Playbike (Android and iOS). 

Note that you turn any ordinary exercise bike stand into Playbike with the equipment provided.

Press about us:

     

Training with Playbike is simple. Attach the sensors to your bike's pedals. Set comfortable resistance level on the bike. Launch a game on your tablet or mobile phone and start exercising. Interact with the game by pressing buttons and varying pedaling rate.

From now on exercise bike training will consist of passing new levels and going through virtual world adventures! You won't notice anymore how your training time passes! But your fat burning process will be as effective as before!  

Founders:

We have a lot of experience in microcontrollers and mobile programming. 

We already have prototypes of buttons and sensors as well as the blueprints of the game system, but we need funds for finalizing the modular design and completing the mobile game application.

Risks and challenges

The production of Playbike requires the following components:
1. Sensors that transmit signals via bluetooth to a mobile phone/tablet (buttons and pedaling rate measurer)
2. Games designed for Playbike exercises (both Android and iOS)

We are a team of IT specialists with extensive experience in the industry. We have been involved in both software development and hardware design (specifically Arduino based). Moreover, our education background (computer science and engineering) makes it more feasible to make the project successful.

We have already designed mobile games for Playbike (based on "Infinite runner" prototypes). We are currently working on the design of the marketing version. We fully understand that creating the final poduct is a challenge but we are the right team to implement it.
