They say this new bike is as smart as your phone. The only reason I have never been keen on riding a bike around town is because of safety. Becoming a cyclist is something that one has to be committed to and to add on that I would say courageous. There are simply too many challenges when riding a bike. Cars hooting, the risk of been stolen from as well angry pedestrians clicking away at you they leave you behind. This is why a Chinese company known as LeEco wants to reduce these troubles to almost none. This new super bike comes with a GPS system , media center, smart locks , fingerprint scanner and an intercom system. It seems as if this particular bicycle will have more features than most cars. But just like a car it also has signal lights for both head and tail as well as a horn.
This bike is almost a crossbreed of a phone and a car. This smart bike will be infused with Google’s Android software . Let’s just say that this is another item that has become super digital just like refrigerators, toasters and many other things. All these new developments also have everything to do with the internet. It’s simply obvious that we are living in a world where we have to be connected to the net or an electronic system. Although the smart bike will reduce cyclists problems, we still have to remember that the roads are not necessarily any safer. Bad drivers , thieves and road hazards will still exist. With a bike that works as well as a phone there is an expectation for more cyclists all around.
As I mentioned earlier security while on a bike can be tricky not forgetting that leaving your bike in a certain place means it can be stolen. Luckily this new bike in town has a location tracker to find where it is. So with such an advanced bike, you could also be sure that once you have invested in it you are certain to have it for a while. The bike price has not yet been released yet but the trade show began today in Las Vegas and is ending on Friday.
