Fisher-Price is preparing the next generation for a life of apps and exercise bikes with its latest innovation in the way children play. The Smart Cycle is a miniature exercise bike with a tablet stand mounted on the front -- kids pedal to play the attached game. We got a hands-on look at the Smart Cycle at CES 2017, but, unfortunately, we weren't able to go feet-on.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Smart Cycle is not large enough for most adults to use, though the company trotted out a larger version just for CES. The bike is designed for kids ages 3 to 6, and presumably it will hold up even after your little one gets super-jacked.

This whole thing is an upgrade of Fisher-Price's previous Smart Cycle, which hooked up to a TV via a cable.

After seeing it in person, it's fair to say the actual Smart Cycle is adorable. It's due to land in June or July for $150, complete with one free game, Mission to Tech City, which offers a literary curriculum. Additional apps will cost $5 each and include offerings from Nickelodeon, such as a SpongeBob SquarePants app that focuses on teaching science and social studies.

The entire thing is Bluetooth-enabled, which means it works with Apple TV and other streaming systems. But parents, feel free to keep the big TV for yourself -- no bike necessary.
