When someone walks into your house the Move It will immediately catch attention, and you’re guests will probably ask you something like, “What’s that?” You would then jokingly answer them, “That’s my gym.” Well, as a joke or not, it is a smart home gym. It is a set of training equipment along with a pair of smart sensors which connects to your mobile phone. The gear makes it a luxurious package that won’t be feel out of place (too much) when placed inside a modern home.
The Move It Smart Home Gym Makes Exercising Accessible Right at Your Own Home
The Movie It is dubbed as the world’s first mobile-connected smart home gym, and it may very well claim that crown. It is also currently up for pre-order over at the product’s crowdfunding page at Indiegogo. The product was designed by a team of Hong Kong Canadians with impressive knowledge, understanding, and experience with that of the IT business sector. Ivan Ho, the CEO of the company responsible for creating the device, formerly worked for the Chinese social networking site YY.com, as well as with Microsoft. Co-Founder Oscar Wang has ties with the health industry.
The Move It Smart Home Gym contains four workout tools which are a resistance band, a jump rope, an ab wheel, and a pushup stand. Even though these are deemed as some of the most basic fitness equipment, the smarts of the entire unit are located at the pair of handles that connects to the exercise equipment. These handles have sensors such as a gyroscope, a pressure grip sensor, an infrared sensor (for measuring distance), a six-axis accelerometer, and a capacitive sensor. When you connect these handles onto the gear, it will automatically detect the form of exercise you’re trying to do (or are already doing) and will send the data to a connected app on your mobile phone. When the exercise equipment are not in use, they can be neatly stowed away on the included stand and can be put to storage without much hassle.
According to early reports, the Move It, more specifically its exercise equipment and sensors, display accurate data. When looking at the app, you can select which workout regimen you would like to do and these are designed by CrossFit trainers. You can even use the app to challenge your friends to a friendly competition to see who can do more pushups.
