Hammerhead Navigation has Six Days to Go for Crowd Funding

Filed under: Tech PR |


I don’t know about this thing, I guess I’d need a bike to really understand it.. It seems like a good idea though, but what’s wrong wit just a regular GPS unit?




The countdown is on. With just six days to go, Hammerhead Navigation has raised 86% of their $145,000 goal on Dragon Innovation. Hammerhead is the world’s first smart and social bike navigation system, increasing viability of daily commuting via bright LED’s that direct riders to the right path. With the Bluetooth enabled device, consumers can download the iOS or Android app to set routes and enjoy hands-free navigation. Compatible with Bixi and B-Cycle, Hammerhead Navigation is the first company built to work with major bike share companies. CEO Piet Morgan thought of the Hammerhead idea after training for a cross-country biking trip while attending Yale. One of his fellow peers was struck by a truck while biking. A couple of years later, attempting to find a route on his phone while simultaneously riding bike, Piet almost met the same fate. He dodged the car by mere seconds, leaving him injured, but Hammerhead was born. Will they reach their goal? The new Hammerhead is now live at www.dragoninnovation.com.
