Another smart device is being built in the coming months by COBI: the Connected Bike. The Kickstarter campaign has largely surpassed the original goal of $100.000, and production is supposed to be starting soon – after all, delivery s promised for 2015 Q2.
I can certainly see myself using this or a similar system on my fitness rides, or while touring with family or friends.I have been dreaming about a smartphone on my handlebars, but the current possibilities are either rudimentary of very expensive. A system that includes an extra battery, integrates with a dynamo, and simplifies manipulation of the apps on the smartphone would fulfill my fantasies – and more!
Just wondering: could I use the same (or a similar) hub on my motorcycle, thus allowing me to have a better GPS in combination with practical smartphone functions in a single device? How about it, BMW: do you care to talk to Carsten about such integration?
