BikeBug Radio Concept

  • When bicyclists want to talk to each other, they usually have to ride side-by-side, which is dangerous when on the side of the road. The BikeBug allows bicyclists hands-free access to two-way radio communication with one or more friends.
  • The small device attaches to the user's helmet in three places-two points on the back hold the radio and one clip on the helmet strap holds the microphone and earpiece. The unit is voice-activated and the transmission circuitry is "full duplex," which means the users can talk to each other naturally, without waiting for the other to finish.
  • The unit can also be used by snowboarders or rock climbers.
