Velodroom’s Smart Bicycle Light

June 18th - via:
Und wieder ein neues Rücklicht fürs Fahrrad. Dieses Mal aber ein “intelligentes”. Velodroom‘s Smart Bicycle Light aus Estland geht nämlich automatisch an, wenn man fährt. Und bewegt sich das Velo eine Minute lang nicht, geht das Licht wieder aus. Auch ein abruptes Abbremsen erkennt das Licht und leuchtet in dem Fall stärker als sonst. Und auch an die Umegbungshelligkeit passt sich das Licht an. Rollt man im scheinwerferbeleuchteten Verkehr, leuchtet auch das Smart Bicycle Light heller. (Read More)

Velodroom: het slimme fietslicht

June 16th - via:
Het is mij regelmatig gebeurd dat ik vergat de lampjes op mijn fiets uit te doen, waardoor ik de volgende avond het risico liep om over het hoofd gezien te worden door een auto of een fikse boete te krijgen. Met de Velodroom, een uitvinding van de Estse uitvinder Indrek Rebane, is dit een probleem van het verleden. Dankzij de inbouw van een accelerometer weet het slimme fietslicht wanneer de fiets in beweging is, waardoor je ‘m nooit meer hoeft aan of uit te zetten. (Read More)
