Velosynth Project – A Fun Bike
Velosynth is a new project on Kickstarter. It is claimed as the open source bicycle interaction synthesizer. It aims to raise 500 $, for now it has raised 1,211 $ with 11 backers. The project idea is to transform the bicycle’s acceleration to the audio feedbacks. Although the project has not clearly stated its uses, the potential uses can include:
(1) Safety, when other bicycles approach, you can hear them and avoid the collision.
(2) Music, when riding bicycle, you can listen to the music, which is adaptive to the bicycle speed.
The project ‘s documentation will be released under the creative commons license, basically free to modify.
