A Taiwanese start-up, Stride, has introduced a machine for the “space-constrained” and “motivationally challenged.” Its Transformer is described as a “multi-use connected fitness machine” that provides biking, running and rowing modes as well as strength cables, but takes up no more room than a treadmill. Sensors in the Transformer feed data into the accompanying app, called Stride-360, which offers visual goal and progress tracking, social connectivity and access to instructor- and user-created YouTube videos. In time, Stride will be opening the platform to other digital trackers. Stride was founded by Joseph Prosnitz and Alexander Kuzmin. It has patents pending for its E-Motion drive train and the Stride-360 Android app. The company will be manufacturing its first Transformer production sample and releasing the iPhone version of its app this month. It is also one of 100 Taiwanese start-ups to exhibit at this month’s virtual Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
