This Device Transforms Any Bicycle into a Smartphone-Powered Smart Vehicle

Amid the rush to create new modes of transportation and launching apps to augment existing modes of transport, an opportunity to enhance a simple yet efficient vehicle, the bicycle, has mostly been missing — until now. The SmartHalo attaches to the handlebars of any normal bicycle and, once paired with your smartphone, acts as a visual navigation guide, complete with turn-by-turn signaling. 1-1 Yes, there are a number of ways you can use your smartphone to navigate a bike trip now, but they mostly consist of checking your handset or smartwatch, both potentially dangerous activities while steering a bike down city streets. What SmartHalo does is provide a dead simple green lighting prompt, connected via Bluetooth to the app on your smartphone, allowing you to keep the handset in your pocket as you follow the color-coded navigation guides on the device. Simply input your destination into the device’s associated app, and SmartHalo will take over from there.1-2When you’re about to turn, the signal beams a white and green warning, and when you’ve traveled in the wrong direction you’ll get a red flashing prompt. Another lighting feature also notifies you when you get a phone call. In addition to serving as a visual guide, the device also connects with the smartphone app to provide biking statistics, including distance traveled, average speed and calories burned. Anytime you’re away from your SmartHalo-equipped bike, you can still track its location on a map via the app. And the weather-resistant device even includes an alarm in case thieves attempt to remove it from your bike.
