Some commenters say this is more educational than it was presented – so maybe it’s not so bad.

    As for the bicycle not being educational…I’m not so sure. Teaching kids from a young age to use alternative modes of transportation, as well as promoting healthy choices, seems like a great idea!


  2. Robin Debreuil says:

    err… I’m not sure a stationary bicycle qualifies as ‘transportation’ : ). Maybe there is more to it than pedaling though, otherwise I’m not sure why smart is even in the name. Seems surprising to win, given all the other posts from the show.

  3. Adad says:

    That bike connects to a TV and has a cartridge system. The cartridges have edutainment material on which you interact with both with a set of buttons and by riding the bike.
