Taking a bike out for a regular spin is not only healthy, it can very likely save you a lot of money too. Think gas, maintenance, and everything else that costs with owning a vehicle. Sure, there is always a trade-off, but you can’t argue against the appeal of biking off somewhere on a beautiful day.
Have no idea where you might want to go or how to get there? You could use a smartphone with GPS directions.
Or you might try something a little more elegant that means to provide directions with an easy glance.
The Hammerhead Navigation is just that type of device. This tool attaches to your bike and uses bright LED lights to indicate directions. You don’t have to worry about mounting your smartphone or trying to decipher directions off a small screen while riding.
It’s more than just some bike navigation. The Hammerhead app on your smartphone lets you discover new places to go while also connecting you to an entire community. You can set preferences such as distance, hills, and difficulty, and the app provides route options you can take.
The Hammerhead features an array of LEDs that let you know how far until you get there, when to turn, and also lets other drivers know when you want to turn.
The designers have made Hammerhead compatible with other biking apps, such as MapMyRide and Strava. The long battery life, coupled with your smartphone’s GPS, means you can go ride to your heart’s content before needing to recharge.
So if you’re interesting in a better way to bike and having a social network to share routes, check out the Hammerhead project.
