Bycle is a startup from Miami. Their goal is to build the first bike mount that allows users to use their iPhone's GPS and video recording features simultaneously to document their journey.
Half of the product is an iOS app that opens when the phone is connected to the bike mount. Such an innovative product posed a series of technical challenges to be sorted. From recording geo data synchronized with video captures, to showing custom views with map overlays on video. All of this framed in the beautiful designs provided.
The Bycle App collects, display, and combine all elements of the ride in a shareable video. The app integrates fitness data, route mapping, and video recording from the ride. Users can browse their videos by selecting points along the map of their route, rather than fast-forwarding and rewinding through a trivial timeline. A rider can go back to relive every moment of the route, minute by minute, mile by mile, calorie by calorie - and share this thrill with riders.
This iPhone case lets cyclists track rides and capture the world around them, by Dan Graziano for Cnet.MORE INFO
