Playpulse aims to bring gaming & fitness together

Techstination feature for Wednesday, June 23, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Turning fitness into competitive fun has become big business for Peloton and others.  A company called Playpulse…from Norway…is jumping into the business with a combination exercise bike, video game console and entertainment system that aims to make working out more fun.   Co-founder Erling Solheim..

“So this company is based on an idea and a project I started a few years ago at the end of my master’s thesis in computer science where I was lacking motivation to exercise and I was finding a lot of motivation to play games.”

So the bike has game controllers and a screen…which can also be used to access streaming content.   But you need to keep peddling.   The Playpulse One is due out later this year.   There’s more at www.Playpulse.com.

You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
