Samsung, known as one of the pioneers in technological products such as computers, smart phones ar tablet PCs, has designed a smart bike in cooperation with Giovanni Pelizzoli and Italian Maestros Academy.
The bike has lasers that project onto the road, creating visibility for those around you. Displaying what amounts to a virtual bike lane, the idea is that others will know you’re there, giving you a sense of spacial belonging on your bike ride. A magnetic mount on the center of the handlebars gives your Samsung smartphone a home.
An arduino computer works in conjunction with your smartphone, connecting your bike to your handset. Track rides, see who else is around in real-time, and even share via a social platform. There is also a rear-facing camera which can give you a look behind you without having to actually look back. And thanks to GPS, you will know where you are going even if you have not visited before.
The Smart Bike is a prototype now it is being developed. Maybe it will be as popular as the smart phones, won’t it?
