Cerevellum- coming soon

Road 5

In keeping with the theme from my last post, I want to point out an article by Evan Solida at Product Design Hub. The article features tips for designers who want to develop their ideas into real products. Evan is doing just that with his Cerevellum expandable cyclo-computer design. Some of you might remember in late 2007 when I first posted about the Cerevellum concept. A few months later I had a chance to ride with Evan and try out his rough prototype. As you can tell from that second post, I really liked the Hindsight feature, so I am glad to see that Evan is moving forward with the concept. The prototype was fun to try out, but I can’t wait to ride with one of the production units when it becomes available.

While I am mentioning Evan, I will also point out that he designed the new AC1 road frame from Blue Competition Cycles. You can read about that bike, and the other new bikes from Blue in a recent VeloNews tech article. Look for a post sometime soon featuring a bit of the background design work that went into the AC1…pretty interesting stuff.

    It would be interesting to see if these could be used in racing. Racers will often wait behind another for the right moment to sprint past when their head is turned the other way, but a camera like this would make that move much more difficult.

    GeekGuyAndy, I had the same thought about using this for racing when I tried out the prototype. It was kind of cool to be able to quickly glance down and know exactly what Evan was doing in the draft.

    I used a bulletcamera at a race in a velodrome that way. It is hard to look behind you in a velodrome. I knew exactly when to sprint like hell or when I'd better let me get caught by the peloton.

    I hope this will be closely followed.
