Mexican Mantis Moving Youth



Getting our youngsters to move more is a major mission for most countries.  Mexian Industrial designer Isabel Rico Avila (btw - I love www.Coroflot.com for inspirational designers) shows off her Mantis bike concept by positioning the rider in a forward leaning position while the hands control a two-wheeled front steering mechanism. Given the skyrocketing rates of youth  overweight and sedentarism, we need to find new activities and solutions that are enjoyable and can be supported in multiple environments.  Let's get a Gamercize unit on this baby and now we have a whole new way to play whatever game we want.  Time for a little praying mantis action;)
