We saw all sorts of locks that can be unlocked by smartphones, but today we have something for fans of cycling.
The latest Owl 360 rear view camera is based on a very similar concept to those now often seen equipped in the back of cars for parking. The idea is simple, cyclists among us will be aware of the common issue of cars not seeing us when we’re on the road. Despite majority of drivers looking in their mirrors when they turn, there’s always the danger that we might fall into their blindspot. This is where the Owl 360 could come in handy, the latest gear consists of a small camera which is mounted underneath our seat and a 3.5″ TFT LCD monitor attached in the front to the handlebar.
You may not get very far on this ‘Pocket Bike’ / Mini Bike largely because of its ride comfort and the amount of fuel it can hold but the HAF X Mini Bike is certainly one astonishing PC case mod. Though the bike itself doesn’t house a display, you probably don’t want to be doing that while you’re scootering about. The idea itself sounds great, why go to work or your mates with a memory stick when you can get there with your own PC and just hook up a display? Check it out in the video below, the bike accelerates, turns and brakes just like any bike…
As a cyclist myself I couldn’t be more happier to see this concept become reality. The video after the jump features LightLane, a bicycle light concept which aimed to increase safety of cyclists by using “super-bright red LEDs” along with two highly visible diode-pumped solid state green lasers to project a path which appears as a bike lane.
