London design studio MAP invented a convenient compass that lets cyclists have fun while traveling. BeeLine is a navigation system that wirelessly connects to a user’s phone from a handlebar attachment. Once a destination is selected and your phone is put away, BeeLine won’t give you strict, turn-by-turn instructions. Instead, this device simply points cyclists in the right direction so they have the freedom to explore and choose exactly which roads they take. You can even use this tool at any time of day and in various weather conditions, since it’s shock-proof, rain-proof, and features a backlight.
When you’re not using BeeLine, its compact, lightweight design allows you to easily store it in your pocket or attach it to your bag with the included keyring. Then, you can quickly connect the gadget to the secure case that’s mounted on your bike next time you want to go for a ride. Since BeeLine is produced with a low energy, e-paper display, its battery can impressively last for 1-3 months.
Currently, BeeLine is being funded on Kickstarter and the first batch of products will be shipped out during August 2016.
