The latest craze. Hmmm.....at those prices, I think I’d rather have the Wii Fit.

Wow, that's the dumbest thing yet. I wonder how long it will be before I see the clueless personal trainers using them.

Wow. You can even keep it on your desk! I went on to see the video about SmartBells Pro. Think aerobics holding a weight plate in your hands. I couldn't find the prices for the heavy ones, but the basic 5lb-something model was, what? $80 or something?

I need to get into internet marketing.

Something like that. I subscribe to Gizmodo, and when you follow links, other links pop up, and eventually you stumble on some stupid stuff. I figured others might get a kick out of the latest and craziest (and sometimes moronic) gadgets.

Like this.

It's a crazy world.

Still, that chair, while definitely not for kids IMO, would make a cool edition to my gameroom. :green:

The SmartBell Pros are ridiculously expensive.

The shape reminds me of those Lifeguard Rescue Cans. Somehow, I doubt a SmartBell would be a good choice for that job. :twisted:

Here they are in action. I bet Britney Spears could find a use for SmartBells.

Notice they put Martial Arts into play with the SmartBells. Heh, I think Jeff Wincott did it better with regular free weights. At 3:48 the 45lb plate comes out, and then at 4:10 the deadly dumbbells.
