Wristband For Motorcyclists That Vibrates Before Approaching Speed Camera

Share
Posted August 3, 2016

Car drivers have a bunch of apps on their phones to keep them alerted to upcoming speed cameras. The motorcyclist can’t expose their phones during the ride, due to a concentration off the road. The Woolf wristband got a built-in vibration buzzer to warn motorcyclists about speed control zones when there are approaching them. It’s covered from a water resistant leather that looks neat enough to wear around all day.

It connects via Bluetooth to a smartphone app that stays connected to the Worldwide Speed Camera Database, which is updated on daily basis with speed camera information for some 66 countries. As you approach a speed camera zone, it starts buzzing and it gets quicker until becomes a solid continuous vibration when you cross the threshold of detection.

It charges via USB, and should last around for two weeks of commuting. It is currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign, where a pledge of $99 will get you one – assuming the funding goal is met.
