Video: The Samsung Smart Bike Has Laser Beams
Milan Design Week is where the Samsung Smart Bike has been unveiled, chock full of smartphone connectivity within its sleek design. With a frame built by bike artisan Giovanni Pelizzoli, the Samsung Smart Bike can even project its own bike lanes via laser beams.
The heart and soul of this sexy bike are the safety features, including the aforementioned laser beam bike lane. Samsung also built in a GPS and a rear-facing camera that projects the video on your Samsung smartphone. The Samsung Smart Bike even has built-in activist features, which lets you track your routes, and lets you tell local government officials which routes need to have bike lanes added.
The Samsung Smart Bike is also serving as the springboard for the Samsung Maestro Academy, which seeks to train a new generation of inspiration designers to come up with world-changing technology. This is just the tip of the iceberg though, as more features are set to be announced down the road. I like how Samsung led with laser beams. ALWAYS lead with laser beams. Everybody wants lasers; it’s like, the most futuristic thing I can think of, even though they’ve been around for decades at this point.
