Let Hammerhead guide your next bike ride


The Hammerhead is a crowdfunded handlebar mounted smart and social bike navigator device which features LED lights that show turn by turn directions. The LEDs are able to provide comprehensive route information while keeping your hands on the handlebars. You can pair it up with your iOS or Android smartphone to enjoy social sharing features that let you send your friends routes you’ve ridden. Or like MapMyRide, you can compete with friends.

The Hammerhead crowdfunded project is hosted on Dragon Innovation, a new crowdfunding platform. It has already surpassed the funding goal of $145,000 with 2 days left. Reserve your own Hammerhead for a minimum pledge of $75.

    Can you explain how it works.

      @Akash, the Hammerhead pairs with your iOS or Android smartphone to load route info. Then it uses LEDs to alert you to turns, hazards, etc. The project page linked to in the post explains it in more detail.

    Thanks for posting, Julie. The directionally challenged among us will like this a lot more than fiddling with smartphones that screen lock ever 10 mins (security reasons). Looks like the funding will hit the stretch goal in part due to the visibility here.
