11/06/2014

On the occasion of the Milan Design Week, Samsung has chosen to join forces with an Italian artisan, a bicycle frame builder, to offer the Samsung Smart Bike, a connected bike that takes advantage of modern technology.
 

Don’t look for an electric motor on this bike, that is not the exercise, the Samsung Smart Bike offers a maximum connectivity with your smartphone.




The frame has been imagined by a master in the field, Giovanni Pelizzoli with stylish design but especially useful: its curved aluminum tubes neutralize most of the vibrations. Then, the Samsung phone allows you to control a series of components / accessories.


The frame houses a (small) battery to power the camera but also a wi-fi and Bluetooth connection, plus an Arduino Module

-4 lasers beams are used to announce your presence to other road users and allow to create your own "cycle lane” that can be recommended to others.
- A built-in GPS gives pride to the community aspect allowing you to meet friends and other cyclists
- The camera placed at the rear of the bike gives you a real-time view of what is happening behind you.
 

This Samsung Smart Bike is also a springboard for the Samsung Maestros Academy which aims to promote a new generation of (Italian) artisans.
