Techno Yoga Mat

You know something is cutting edge when it comes to your attention twice in less than 12 hours. Both geeksugar and sugar user tdamji are into this blending of uber contemporary technology and the ancient practice of yoga.

Designer Hui-Zong Chen has conceived of a yoga mat, made of an electronic paper screen that unfurls from a metal tube that is a stereo with cute little speakers housed at each end. The yoga mat can play streaming videos at the top of the mat, so you can follow a virtual yoga instructor through a series of poses. Better yet, you could “conference” in your friends and create a group class situation with participants in different parts of the globe.

Alas, this hi tech mat is still in the conceptual stage, but cool nonetheless. I love the idea of my Warrior I riding the technology wave, how about you?

Everyone tries to market excercises.. but really do you think gurus from india had expensive yoga mats with their matching water bottles and addidas yoga shoes? No.

This isn't actually that far from reality...there's a technology called OLED (organic light emitting diode) that eliminates the need for a backlight, allowing for displays that are paper thin - like the one in this concept design.
