Have you ever tried reading while running on a treadmill? It is almost impossible because the page jumps around too much.
Now a company has developed a solution. Their product called Run-n-Read lets you exercise both your body and mind by allowing you to read text (digital books) on a tablet while running.
Run-n-Read is a tiny clip-on device that can be attached to a headband or the collar of your shirt. It works in conjunction with an e-reader app on your tablet that tracks the movement of your head and shoulders. It then keeps the text bouncing in sync with your eyes. In order to turn pages, users simply tap the device once for a forward page turn and twice to page backwards. In addition to its reader features, the system can also doubles as a fitness tracker.

The company that developed Run-n-Read is seeking crowd funding to cover the costs of making this device widely available. Individuals can pledge to help them reach their fund raising goal and become an early adopter of the device.
What an interesting device that potentially could help all authors sell more books. After all, the more places people can read, the more reading will occur.
