The Samsung Smart Bike Concept

From smartphones to smart watches to smart TVs...almost everything these days need to be smart. While many big companies focus their efforts on smart cars, Samsung has decide to go a different route. Together with Maestros Academy, Samsung has created a smart bike that aims to keep you more than just safe. Also, everything you do using your smart bike gets tracked via your smartphone.

Powered by an Arduino computer, paired with your smartphone, the Samsung smart 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. As mentioned, you can track rides, see who else is around in real-time, and even share information 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. There are no known plans yet to release the said smart bike, as it is still in concept stage but I'm sure that many will look forward to this.


Til then...
