This is the sickest TV you've ever seen in a treadmill

The iFit NordicTrack Escape Treadmill is scheduled to ship this fall.

Well, someone has finally found a good use for a 60-inch curved OLED TV.

Behind closed doors at CES in Las Vegas, iFit was showing off a prototype of its upcoming NordicTrack Escape Treadmill, which incorporates a giant 4K OLED TV turned vertically on its side. It also has a lot of other fancy technology built into it, including the ability to follow Google Street View images on the screen -- the treadmill not only tilts up and down but side-to-side to mimic the actual terrain of your chosen destination.

As for watching more standard programming, fear not, you can do that, too. The Escape is Web-enabled so you can stream whatever you want to it over Wi-Fi. Oh, and it will offer personalized workout suggestions, track your workouts, and connect to iFit's growing line of wearables.

If you're wondering what kind of OLED TV is in the NordicTrack Escape Treadmill, the prototype I saw was using a Samsung OLED, but no model has been confirmed yet for the final unit.

Needless to say, the Escape will be expensive, somewhere in the $8,000-$10,000 range, depending on how prices for OLED TVs go. (That converts to around £5,470 to £6,840 in the UK and AU$11,360 to AU$14,200 in Australia.) It's scheduled to ship this fall.
