Fresh air? Sunlight? Who needs that mess when your kid can get all the exercise he needs while exploring the Great Indoors? Here at CES, Fisher-Price debuted its Think & Learn Smart Cycle. If you think it looks like a tiny $150 SoulCycle bike with a tablet stand, you're right.

According to the to the company's surveys, preschoolers watch around 19 hours of video content a week and spend roughly 20 percent of their playtime using electronic devices. So why not let the little ankle-biters burn off some energy while playing with their gadgets on a slightly larger gadget? This isn't the first ridable Fisher-Price has released -- the company has been producing tricycles, push cycles and Power Wheels for years -- nor is it the company's first foray into STEM-based learning, but it is the brand's first stationary bike.

The Smart Cycle connects to a tablet via Bluetooth and runs four educational apps (focused on literacy, STEM, math and social studies), which are driven by the kid's pedaling prowess. Each of these apps cost $5, though Smart Cycle Mission to Tech City comes free with the bike. The system is compatible with Android, iOS and Amazon Fire devices.
