Samsung has unveiled its concept for a Smart Bike. The bike was created in conjunction with Maestro Giovanni Pelizzoli -- a world famed frame builder -- and a young student -- Alice Biotti.

This is the first bicycle that protects the rider thanks to its safety components, controlled by a Samsung Smartphone. It comes with an innovative bicycle-frame that neutralizes the most dangerous vibrations to the human body, 4 laser beams to alert other drivers that the bike is coming along, an integrated GPS system to tell local authorities which routes should be immediately turned into real bike-lanes.

Samsung Smart Bike integrates within its frame innovative smart-components (such as a battery, Wi-Fi + Bluetooth + Arduino module, 4 laser-projectors and a digital-camera) controlling them through a smartphone. In particular, the rear view camera allows the rider to always watch his back, thanks to a real-time video-stream on the Samsung smartphone.

With 4 built-in laser beams, Samsung Smart Bike projects a bike-lane, so that other drivers can mind the safety-distance and the rider can be seen even around blind-corners. A responsive “safety-environment” that detects ambient-conditions and protects the driver in real-time, for example by switching-on or off the laser beams according to the brightness sensor of the paired smartphone. In addiction, a GPS system tracks people’s daily routes and let local authorities know which ones should be immediately turned into real bike-lanes.

Curvy aluminum tubes are able to neutralize the most dangerous vibration to the body, providing a comfortable ride.

The Samsung Smart Bike week was presented during the 2014 Milan Design Week. Take a look at the video below for more details...

How is this innovative? You can get all the parts months ago from dx.com or banggood.com . Things like camera, smartphone and laser bike lights. Nothing new...just like Samsung to copy!

Safety to the next level? Ok so does it let me know when a car comes? What if I need to turn around and have little space? Like Fukscrawn said, he has a point, besides you can control onewheel either way instead of circling in a big gap I can just lean back simple as that. F.uck bikes.

On onewheel of course, you don't need leg energy, all you do it lean to move forward or back and do the opposite like that, no handles needed.
