One of the more interesting things I noticed coming out of CES

During CES last week, Panasonic unveiled a partnership with Nordic Track involving a treadmill connected to the Internet. As you can see from the video, the outcome is a way to have a virtual outdoor run using Google Maps Street View- all from the comfort of your living room. Interesting and inspiring stuff for those of us living in a cloud forest.

To make things extra slick, the device communicates the presence of hills to increase the incline of the treadmill at the appropriate times, matching actual hills on your virtual route.

Will be interesting to see how this idea of virtual fitness experiences evolves over the coming years.
