La Cybic Legend It is a bike that is integrated with the Alexa device and will be presented in the coming days at the Consumer Association Technology 2019 (CES 2019), which will take place from January 8 to 11 in Las Vegas, United States.
Alexa is the voice-controlled virtual assistant created by Amazon, and launched in November 2014 along with its line of Echo smart speakers, similar to Google home
The new Cybic Legend bike is going to mark a new stage in bikes as it intends to become a smart bike capable to take advantage ofall the information that Alexa can provide to make life easier for its user, and above all to be used by city, although it can be useful in other areas.
It has a touch screen on the handlebar, almost as if it were a smartphone, but that you can only use if you are stopped. While you are pedaling you will have the possibility to give voice orders or take advantage of buttons located on the handlebar.
Furthermore, Alexa can help you by informing you of the traffic status, inform you if the weather will get worse or giving you directions for get to your destination, like a GPS. You can also carry out other actions such as turn on the lights of the bike or activate the music, and of course, the screen will show you information about your journey such as distance, speed, etc.
Another interesting point is that the mobile can be connected to handle calls and will include an alarm and a tracker in the event of the theft of the bicycle.
Not much is known about this bike yet, everything will be revealed before the presentation where we will know the price and all its specifications.
What is clear that this is going to be the first step and we will soon see this technology implanted in road bikes and MTBs.
But before this bike, the prototype created by Remí Ballot in 2018 was created
The bike is completely homemade equipped with Amazon Alexa, a speaker, a camera and a screen on the handlebar (to see in real time what is happening behind).
The bike has lights, obstacle sensors and a set of items for riding at night (reflective strips, lights on the frame and on the wheels).
These are the photos of the first bicycle integrated with Alexa
