With a quick glance at the map, you can remember where you left your bike.
Pingbell also uses Bluetooth Smart to tell you if you’re getting closer or not.
Your ears are awesome at locating things!
If you still can’t find your bike, ping it to hear where it is.
Smart doesn’t need to mean intrusive.
We’ve simplified the design and user-experience so that it fits right into your life without demanding your attention.
When you ping your bike from a distance, Pingbell actually rings itself.
This gives a full, rich sound that is a lot more authentic than an electronic beep.
And of course Pingbell also functions as a
conventional special bell.
It’s made of brass and the sound is loud and crisp so that everyone can hear you.
The free Pingbell app will be available for both iOS & Android.
It lets you keep track of multiple Pingbells and even share their location.
This is a prototype so the way it looks and the functionality we present here are not a guarranty to be produced exactly in this way.
That said, it will be close!
At FROLIC studio we love solving problems. Our studio is in Amsterdam, and for all the amazing things that living in a bicycle-friendly city brings to the table, finding your bike after you’ve parked it is a daily nightmare. We wanted to tackle this problem, so over the course of 24 hours we pushed ourselves to solve it by building a working prototype.
This is how we originally came up with Pingbell. Check out the original prototype:
