FI Grad Visiobike Creates iPhone-Controlled Bike, Featured on TechCrunch

Posted by Joe Garza on 2014-06-05

Visiobike has created what may very well be the world’s most hi-tech bike, featuring an assortment of gadgets that would make Batman jealous. News of Visiobike’s gizmo-packed two-wheeler was covered by John Biggs in a TechCrunch article titled The iPhone-Controlled Visiobike Will Take You For A Ride.

Visiobike and its Founder Marko Matenda are Graduates of the Zagreb Founder Institute.

Constructed of carbon fiber and featuring a smartphone dock, the Visiobike comes complete with special software that includes a speedometer, transmission control, and other geeky but oh-so-cool surprises. This electric/mechanical hybrid also utilizes battery assist to help you up hills, as well as an automatic transmission system that ensures minimal battery use.

For the safety minded, Visiobike also features a camera in the seat for rear-facing views of traffic and for recording if someone rear-ends you. With disc brakes, automatic safety lights, and a unique three minute recording feature that shows you what happened in an accident, the Visiobike lets you cruise with style and security.

Because of the $5k+ price tag, the Visiobike may not be for the casual rider, but will definitely appeal to those interested in the future of pedal-assist and electric bikes.
