Clip-On Device Helps Runners Read By Making Text Bounce
Run-n-Read detects the wearer’s movements and moves text on a mobile device in real-time so it stays in sync with their eyes.
Run-n-Read is a clip-on device that detects the wearer's head movements and moves text on a mobile device in real-time so it keeps in sync with their eyes. Launched by Weartrons on the crowfunding platform Dragon Innovation, the small gadget can be used on treadmills, stairmasters and exercise bikes.
Clipped to a headband or shirt, the Run-n-read uses motion sensors and tiny controllers to sync head movements with a mobile device via Bluetooth. The accompanying app adjusts text on the screen so it bounces around in time to your pace but the person wearing it would think the text was still.
