Pedal Brain iPhone kit connects your bike to your iPhone

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2009

There are all kinds of gadgets for cyclists and now there’s an iPhone app/accessory kit for them as well. The finishing touches are still being worked on, but they’ve made their Pedal Brain kit official anyway. Think of it as a Nike+ for cyclists.

It comes with a case accessory that uses the ANT+ wireless protocol to relay all of the information from your bike. That info is processed and analyzed by the Pedal Brain app. Pedal Brain also features a coaching feature that will let you make your own training plans and sell them through the app (They take a $4 a month cut).

Horse training vehicle monitors race horses

Horse training vehicle monitors race horsesIf you’ve been journeying far and wide across the interwebz, you may already know what this vehicle is all about. We covered it last July and it’s making the rounds again. If you haven’t seen it, here’s a refresher. This isn’t the Amish discovering Hot Rods, it trains horses.

And we still think Batman may have had something to do with it. I mean, look at the design. Bruce Wayne has his hands in everything. Why not race horses? It allows trainers to be close to the animals while training them and monitoring their vital signs. It has very precise and controlled speeds ranging from walking to 60kph.

If Batman were Amish: Roush Horse Trainer

If Batman were Amish: Roush Horse Trainer
At first I thought this had to be some backwards Superhero vehicle. You know the old story, Amish guy witnesses the murder of his parents, then grows up to fight crime on the streets with something like this. Only it’s not.

This vehicle is used by Roush Technologies for Turkish-based Kurt Systems, to train horses so they win races. It allows trainers to be close to the animals while training them and monitoring their vital signs. It has very precise and controlled speeds ranging from walking to 60kph. One thing is for sure, you don’t see this on the road everyday.
