A Solution in Search of a Problem

Finally, I've met a piece of technology I don't like. I daresay I might even sound like a Luddite.

(YouTube video)

So am I missing something here? Is there an epidemic of children who cannot figure out how to ride a bicycle? This Gyrobike training wheel will cost about $100, and if you believe the testimonials, your tot will be riding sans training wheels in about an hour. So $100 to save a few hours of practice? Whatever happened to pushing your kid down a hill? We're becoming a nation of wimps.

Full disclosure: I did not receive any payment for this awesome review.
