This smart cross-trainer works your ass off for the right to watch Netflix

Once you start training and reach your desired tempo, the show will start streaming.

[…] The platform is not currently providing fitness broadcasters with a way to monetize their streams but [CEO Tristan Zier] says it will be adding a raft of features to enable this — so they will be able to take donations and subscriptions, generate merch sales and take ad revenue in a way he describes as similar to the e-sports/video games broadcasting platform Twitch. – Natasha Lomas, TechCrunch http://ift.tt/1Wo474s
