Einstein's Pedometer App Measures Your Aging (or Lack Thereof)

In case you need a science class reminder, Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity partly concerned the process of ageing—specifically that a stationary person actually ages faster than someone in motion. Using the iPhone's GPS, along with the Lorentz Transformations, this app will details exactly how much "life"… » 4/08/11 7:00am 4/08/11 7:00am

Bandai RPG Pedometers, Like Nike+ for the Extra Masochistic

13 billion years ago, a super dense ball of junk exploded. And it's taken this long for someone like Bandai to come around and combine our least favorite thing (exercise) with one of our most favorite things (pointless, time-sucking RPGS, preferably featuring some sort of underage girl with oversized...eyes...who has… » 10/17/08 2:01pm 10/17/08 2:01pm

Creative's Zen Krystal MP3 Materializes Out of Nowhere

It kind of looks like a Zen Stone, and it is certainly a far cry from the Zen X-Fi, but this little MP3 player has been discovered hiding on Creative's Hong Kong site. Apparently, the 4GB Zen Krystal is designed to be a sports player with a pedometer that functions similarly to the Nike+ line. It also includes games… » 7/17/08 1:39pm 7/17/08 1:39pm

Lap-Around-Japan Pedometer Lets You Virtual Hike Around Japan During…

Out in Japan at the end of next month, U-Mate's Lap-Around-Japan pedometer is a novel idea to get people walking. Instead of noting the same old landmarks (skyscraper, dog toilet, convenience store, interminable roadworks, pervy builders, etc. etc.) the miles you cover are transposed into miles around the japanese… » 2/20/08 5:09am 2/20/08 5:09am

The Adidas Phone (With Help From Samsung)

If we told you to picture a phone with the Adidas branding on it, would you picture something spectacular, or something more along the lines of a 2-megapixel slider with FM radio, MP3 player and an EDGE connection? Right. At least the phone, manufactured by Samsung, has actual sport functionality with a pedometer and… » 10/25/07 7:50pm 10/25/07 7:50pm

Sportline ThinQ Pocket Credit Card-Sized Pedometer

The deal here is that this is a credit card sized, 3mm thick, pedometer. Counts calories, distance, and steps. This makes a lot more sense than strapping a full sized pedometer to your arm or belt and living with it in tow. Most walking is probably done down city blocks, across the office to the laser printer, and… » 9/20/07 5:26pm 9/20/07 5:26pm
