If there is anything missing from your workouts, it's Android. As long as you have $1,700 laying around, that won't be a problem for long. The Peloton exercise bike has been funded on Kickstarter, and that means it's going to be a reality. Well, technically it just means the company is going to try super-hard to make it a reality.

The Peloton bike is a high-end exercise bike with a 1080p 21.5-inch Android-powered touchscreen. It's going to run Jelly Bean 4.1 under the hood, but it won't be the Android you know and love. Peloton is using Android as the platform for streaming spin classes and tracking stats.

Peloton has until July 24th to rake in even more cash. There are still early bird slots available if you want to save a few bucks and get the bike for only $1,500. This device is probably overkill for most people, but don't pretend you wouldn't kind of like to root your exercise bike.

    I wouldn't want to see salty sweat droplets all over a nice floor like the one in that picture.

    I wonder how this is any different from that Tour De France bike from Proform. Oh wait, this one has Android. Sweet.

    Does this play some sort of amazing steampunk combat flight simulator MMORPG? Because that is the only way I would buy this.

    Ok, seriously, you can't brag about brilliant design and then place the speakers on the back of the tablet/screen!!!

    So its a bike with a screen? For $1700? Man, there are some huge retards on the planet. Why not buy a normal bike and point it towards a screen?
