What It Is
Ready to get active? This new handheld and online gaming gadget teaches kids that exercise can be FUN! With the ME2, or “My Electronic Double,” create your own avatar to represent you in the virtual world and motivate you to be active. The avatar is powered by activity, and there's built-in reinforcement and encouragement. The more a child is active, the more powerful his or her avatar becomes in the virtual world. Kids can earn points for their avatars by walking, running, biking, skateboarding, and more! Simply clip the ME2 to clothes or put it in your pocket to rack up points with every move. Then connect the unit to a computer via USB and use points to purchase cool items for your avatar from the virtual store. The palm-sized ME2 features a color screen with full animation, plus a clock, alarm and timer, sound effects, and a USB cable.
