Running and reading just don’t mix. Have you ever tried it? Running on a treadmill at the gym (and we mean running, not jogging) and trying to ready your new favorite book or a magazine only to find that you can’t concentrate fully on either. Well the new Run-N-Read device will help you read while on a treadmill or elliptical machine. It clips to your headband or tee and is iOS and Android tablet/smartphone compatible. It allows for remote page flipping so your hands never have to touch the tablet/smartphone and it also counts steps and calories burned so you can keep track of how good of a work out you’re getting.
The device tracks head movements so the text is always in sync with your eyes via its patent pending technology that monitors all 3D motions while running or riding. Their intelligent algorithms utilize a fast screen refresh rate of 60 frames per second (movies are at only 24 frames per sec) to provide a seamless reading experience akin to being at rest. It connects to all popular iOS/Android tablets, eReaders and smartphones via Bluetooth. It uses a rechargeable battery that charges vis a USB port is provides for 20 hours of use time and one month of stand by time. It’s available in four colors: red, green, blue and pink. Get one by pledging $40!
