Share
Posted August 10, 2016

The Shoka Bell offers to make a bicycle bell packed with navigation, theft alerts, and lighting into compact package. Connected to a smartphone app it’s top-mounted LEDs can provide realtime navigation by pointing an arrow in the right direction. The 110 g bell is attached to a base clamp unit magnetically.

Most of locks can be cut by thieves, that’s why Shoka bell incorporates an alarm. It relies on a motion detector built into the handlebar clamp. When handlebar clamp detects movement, it will ring an alarm on the bell from up to 250 meters.

There is a range of programmable bell tone with a maximum volume designed to be twice as loud as a regular bell.

Battery lasts about 200 hours, and charges by a MicroUSB plug. There’s an accelerometer, light sensor and microphone built into the bell,

Currently, the Shoka team is seeking funding on Kickstarter. The Kickstarter project has raised more than $128,000 of its initial $75,000 goal with 22 days remaining, and deliveries are expected to begin in March 2017.
