In bicycle heavy cities around the world, locating your bike after parking it next to hundreds of other ones can be difficult. It’s that one thing at you expect shouldn’t add to the stress of your daily life, but when you’re stood in front hundreds of bikes that basically look the same, it may be that one last straw in an already stressful day.
Designed by FROLIC Studio, the Pingbell sets out to make it a whole lot easier for you to locate your bike in a mountain of other bicycles. Pingbell will keep track of where your bike is and will show you your bike’s location through an app on your mobile phone. Not only that, if you still have difficulty locating it, you can press a button on your app to ping your bike. There’s a silent mode that uses a blinking light if you don’t want to disturb your neighbors.
It’s a simple and elegant solution for a very specific problem, but if you are one of those people that has been frustrated by this, it may be worth swapping out your rusty old bicycle bell with a Pingbell. The Pingbell is currently on Kickstarter, waiting for like minded cyclists.
