America is fat. We love everything to be fried and served drizzled in chocolate. There aren’t many inventions greater than a hamburger with two donuts acting as buns. When Kentucky Fried Chicken came out with the Double Down by making a sandwich utilizing two hunks of fried chicken as buns and then stuffed the middle with bacon and cheese, we celebrated. We celebrated every bit of the 37 grams of fat that the sandwich brought us and then rejoiced when they created their Famous Bowls (basically a bowl of everything unhealthy with gravy poured over the top). We are the only nation that can watch a commercial for a new burger and hear the words “special sauce” and not even think twice about what it is actually made out of. If you ever go to the Texas State Fair, you will learn that anything and everything can be fried. We salute America for this ingenuity but it does mean we all have to work out twice as hard to eat things like that.
Wearable technology is all of the rage right now and we’re trying to turn everything into something that can read us our text messages. We are also trying to track our activity and have seen a gold rush of people getting into these fitness trackers. There is a new one that is on IndieGogo trying to raise money (it already beat it’s record) for the completion of it. The unique thing about Atlas is that it has developed a new way to track activities and can tell exactly the activities you are doing. They claim that Atlas can actually tell the difference between a sit up and a push up, even the difference between a normal push up and a triangle push up. This unique aspect is what makes us intrigued by the Atlas Fitness Tracker and are anxious to see it reach completion and onto the wrists of every fried food eating guy out there.
