Court: From Nerds on Call.
Host: Yep nerd alert! Nerd alert! Court, I'm already excited about one of thesegadgets, this thing right here.
Ryan what is this thing? Ryan: So this is called The Leap Band, thisis kinda like a FitBit for kids.
Host: Oh, my son would love that.
Ryan: One of the coolest parts about thisis the kids put it on, and you get a little virtual pet there.
You can see our little panda here, and youcan make them do little workouts.
Host: Panda, panda, panda.
Ryan: And he'll work out with you, you cando all kinds of little fun games with him, there's a section here where you can feedhim, and it teaches kids about healthy eating, and there's another section where it's.
Youcan groom him, and it teaches you how to, you know, make sure that you stay nice andclean for school.
Host: Now as a FitBit, does it also have anythingthat counts the steps? Ryan: Yeah.
Host: Because my son would love to see, like,every step he takes.
Ryan: Yeah, what it does, it has little differentworkouts.
It does little challenges, so it'll say like,"Oh, hop like popcorn.
" And so you hop a bunch of times and it'llgive you a little, "Hey you did it! Good job!" And it'll say, "Hey, let's hop like a bunny,"or "Walk in a straight line," and different things like that.
And then you can go online and you can kindasee how well your child is doing on your own, but you can also set schedules, because obviouslyhaving a little band on your hand while you're at school or maybe at quiet time, it's nota good time, so you can set schedules and say, "Hey, during that time you just can'tinteract with anything, and it won't make any noises or beeps or anything.
" But it's just a really great, fun way to geta little three-year-old, four-year-old, or whatever it is to just jump and go and havea little fun.
Host: Got a price point on that? Ryan: Sixteen bucks, that's it! Host: That's it? Court: What! That's great! Ryan: We got, we got one of these and we thought,"Man, we gotta get another one," so we got two now so our kids can compete.
That's the cool part, is you can also kindahave the kids compete with each other so they can say, "Oh, look how far I went today, lookhow much.
" Host: I want one for myself.
Ryan: "How much calories I burned.
" Host: Can I have one too? Ryan: Sure, why not! Host: It says 4 to 7 but I'm 47, so that'sclose enough, right? Just get rid of the dash, it's for 47.
Ryan: It also has a great little app thatyou can use online, and it'll give you little fit facts, it'll also allow you to interact.
It unlocks games, so as you do more exerciseit unlocks games online that you can play on your iPad or your iPhone, so it makes iteven more fun.
Host: Oh that's awesome.
I love that, man.
Ryan: So here's another fun little thing youcan do.
So let's say your kid's a little bit older,and he's not ready for, he doesn't want to play a LeapBand.
This is called S-workit, or Sworkit for kids.
Court: Sworkit! Ryan: What this does is it has little, littlegames that you can do, let me begin a workout here.
You can see this little kid working his buttoff.
Host: Oh, nice! Ryan: So it gives you different workouts,lets you set a timer.
This is exactly like the adult version butit's all the exercises are done by kids.
Host: Oh cool.
Ryan: And it gives you little challenges andways to keep up and so you can stay fit, get off the couch, maybe every time a commercialcomes on, say, "Do your workout!" Right? Because that's another fun way.
Host: Love that! Ryan: Now, let's say they're a teenager.
Of course everybody's talking about PokemonGO.
Host: I've heard of it, yes.
Ryan: The cool thing about Pokemon GO is thatactually you go out and you have to move in order to interact with anything in the game.
So if you want to go to a gym, or if you wantto go to a Pokestation, or if you want to catch the little dude, you can't just sitin your house.
And so this thing, one of the guys at worksaid the other day, this is kind of funny.
Host: What's that? Ryan: I'm gonna get a little political here.
Said that Pokemon GO has done more for childobesity than Michelle Obama did in eight years.
Group: Oh! Wow! Wow! Ryan: All right, so let's say your kids aren'tinto either one of those.
There's another cool thing you can get, andoh, I just lost it! Oh, come back, come back, come back.
Man: Michelle Obama just did that.
Ryan: Yeah, she did.
Court: Straight from the White House.
Host: The FLOTUS just reached out.
Ryan: This is the Nikon Coolpix camera, ah,and it's gone now.
Michelle Obama is really getting me.
Anyway, there's a Nikon Coolpix.
This is a Nikon Coolpix camera, and it's $129,it's waterproof and kid-proof.
And so what my daughter loves to do is shetakes her little iPhone or her little iPad, and takes pictures of the dog a bunch of timesbut I get nervous, like, "Oh my gosh, she's gonna drop it in the pool, or do something,"so this Nikon CoolPix camera for $129, they can go all over the place, drop it in thepool, and you can set little challenges in the morning and say, "Hey, take pictures offlowers today," or, "I wanna see a picture of the dog, a flower, the pool, and maybeget some underwater shots," and it gets them out, moving and being creative.
Host: That's fantastic ideas.
And you have some more coming up.
It's a progressive, progressive morning forNerds on Call, got a lot more coming up.
Ryan: Yeah, this one was 'Get 'em off theCouch', the next one's gonna be, 'Get 'em Outside'.
We got drones, we're gonna play in the studio,and I almost hit my wife in the face with a drone last night.
[inaudible 00:04:02] Court: Oh my gosh! Host: But that's what it's for! Ryan: Yeah! Court: What is with you today? Host: All right, always good to see you.
Ryan: Good to see you.
Man: And of course, all of this stuff's linkedto our site, gooddaysacramento.
Court? Court: All right.
