Nowadays overweight children are widespread. TAURUS is a playful sports device which gives pleasure in movement for children. TAURUS eschews the seat allowing children to burn a lot of energy within a short period of time. The child stands leaning forward enabling correct posture while making the largest muscles in his body work harder. In the back wheel hub of the bike, there are six capacitors that store energy created from stepping. This energy can be called upon for driving when needed. A display describes the relationship between the amount of energy created and stored. This in turn provides energy consciousness for the child.
