Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Bandai Namco has unveiled Vital Hero, a wearable for kids, that lets them play with digital monsters…and gets them more fit while they do it. The wrist worn device serves as a gamified fitness band…that gives kids missions…like doing sprints and squats. All in the name of strengthening your digital monster. Senior Brand Manager Selah Estrada…
“Each time you do it you have different times and different quantities that you have to complete in order to evolve you character. And then after you complete the mission you actually win a trophy and that’s what helps your character evolve to be stronger and better.”
And the digital monsters can do battle in game play with friends. There are new characters you can bring to the device too. You can find Vital Hero for about 65 dollars. There’s more at www.vitalhero.com.
