Cyclists that would like to upgrade their standard bike into a smart bike using their smartphone for the processing power may be interested in a new smart bike system which is being created by iCradle called COBI.
COBI has been specifically designed to make cycling more rewarding and fun for cyclists and adds over 100 intelligent features to any bike using a simple and predictive user interface on your smartphone. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the COBI smart bike system from the team that created it.
COBI is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity and using additional devices connected to your bike can report speed, distance, climb rater etc as well as provide auto brake light, tun signals and anti theft alarm to name just a few. Its creators explain :
“Our system offers hard- and software upgradeability – with the developer SDK for apps, wearables and on-board electronics, the system is ready for every good idea tomorrow may bring. And with our interchangeable Mount Case there’s no need to buy a new COBI if you get a new phone.
COBI upgrades your bike and improves your life. Its advanced technologies and smart design are geared towards one purpose: enhancing your biking experience.”
