Kids love their screen time especially with tablets but the downside is that it may come at the expense of exercise and healthy activities but a new smart trampoline solves that problem.
The Springfree Trampoline featuring tgoma – an outdoor interactive digital gaming and fitness system – combines outdoor activities with digital media.
Studies by tgoma have shown that kids are spending up to 60 hours a week on mobile devices but less than an hour playing outside.
Springfree Trampoline’s with tgoma includes sensor technology on the trampoline mat that can integrate with the user’s own tablet.
The tablet is housed in a special holder with a sun shield so it’s held in place at the right height and is still easily visible even in bright sunlight.
The tgoma app is free to download from the App Store for iOS or the Google Play Store for Android and it contains seven games that are engaging, interactive and educational.
There are even interactive fitness workouts for adults.
The games include:
Fruitants: Players must jump to juice the fruit. It’s like a more physical version of Fruit Ninja.
Alien Stomp: There are aliens that need stomping – you get the idea.
Whatzat: Jump to reveal different pictures and sounds.
Math Hopper: Incorporates 10 levels of maths from counting, addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.
Stickers: A free play game that allows players to jump and create colourful stickers on the screen.
2048: The classic game is even better on a trampoline and lets you exercise your body and your brain.
tgomaFit: Exercise along with a professional trampoline coach with your choice of 26 different trampoline exercises.
“Our goal is to shift kids’ behaviour from indoor sedentary play to outdoor active play,” says tgoma founder Steve. Holmes.
“Instead of fighting technology, it’s about leveraging it to transform screen time from an isolating, sedentary activity to a healthful, engaging experience for the entire family.”
Springfree Trampolines with tgoma are available for pre-sale now and start at $1,299.
