News: BINOREAL launches speed-controlled rechargeable smart bike light

 

BINOREAL has launched the Radius F1, a speed-controlled smart bike light on Indiegogo

PIONEERING BIKE LIGHT MAKES CYCLING SMARTER AND SAFER

BINOREAL launches speed-controlled rechargeable smart bike light

Lighting expert BINOREAL today launches the Radius F1 front smart bike light, which adapts brightness and lighting mode (beaming to pulsing) automatically to help cyclists commute more safely.

The number of people cycling to work in the U.S. has increased by 60% in the past decade*, which means there is a real need for safe, reliable, technologically advanced cycling accessories. The Radius F1 smart bike light ensures cyclists have the visibility and indicators they require when traveling in poor light conditions.

Smart responsive lighting**

The Radius F1 smart bike light uses hundreds of microlenses, which combine with a reflector to effectively illuminate both distant and close-up terrain. Bike lights which adapt brightness and lighting mode while cycling is not new, but the majority switch sharply between two or three preset light levels, which can distract the cyclist and others around. The Radius F1 transitions between a dim and bright light seamlessly, with no jarring shifts in light output. This minimizes the risk of an accident.

The Radius F1’s user-friendly design means unlike other smart bike lights there aren’t any technology integrations required—it is both speed sensor and light source.

When cyclists gain speed, the Radius F1’s RightBrightTM component automatically brightens its light so cyclists can see further ahead; when the bike slows, it dims—and it shifts at the same rate the speed changes. This conserves battery power and ensures visibility is always optimal for the cyclist’s speed.

In addition to auto-adjusting brightness, SecurePulseTM technology automatically switches to flash mode when braking to a stop and pulse mode when turning a corner. This gives other cyclists and motorists indication of the cyclist’s movements for increased safety.

After three minutes of non-movement, the light’s PerfectPowerTM functionality means it automatically switches the light to standby mode. Once the bike moves, the light becomes active and returns to its default speed-controlled lighting mode. After one hour of bike inactivity, the light’s power shuts off completely to save battery.

User- friendly controls

Easily attach the Radius F1 and Bluetooth remote to the handlebars and manually adjust brightness and mode in seconds.

The high power Lithium-ion battery can keep going for up to two hours continuously in high mode, and the easy-to-read display on top of the casing displays how much battery charge is left. Simply snap on the light’s magnetic charger and recharge in three to four hours.

Smart durable design

The TurnLockTM mounting, means the light can be attached and reattached within seconds, and Bluetooth connectivity ensures control of the device without hands having to leave the handlebar.

Engineered for both aesthetic excellence and technological performance, the Radius F1 smart bike light is minimalist and high-tech. It’s sleek black and silver casing will suit any bike frame.

Made with the highest grade materials and by leading manufacturing processes such as CNC aluminum machining, the Radius F1 provides excellent lighting accuracy and heat transfer.

Crafted with pinpoint precision, it is IPX7-rated, which means it is safe from water damage even when submerged in 3.3 feet of water for 30 minutes. The light helps to retain safe cycling in adverse weather conditions.

BINOREAL’s Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign kicks off on the 6 December with a target of $15,000 to put the pioneering device into mass production.

Radius F1 450: $79.99 (High mode: 450 Lumens, battery capacity: 2600mAh)

Article: World of Liberty supports TinySuperHeroes by donating proceeds to make capes for children with an illness or disability



 

World of Liberty is a fun adventure series of apps designed to help kids learn more about the world around them.  Below are snippets of our reviews for each of the three apps created by Amber Hood, founder of World of Liberty. During the month of December, 100% of  proceeds raised from the sale of World of Liberty apps will be donated to TinySuperHeros an  incredible organization.  TinySuperHeroes is an organization that makes capes for kids who have an illness or disability and since 2013, they have empowered over 12K kids across the world!

” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>World of Liberty app bundle (includes all 3 apps!)

World Of Liberty Adventure 1It’s Raining Pumpkins in Delaware by World of Liberty, LLC is an interactive universal storybook designed for iOS by Ogg Studios that takes different parts of the United States and explores how they connect to other parts of the country called “country connections” which helps to understand what America has in common with other countries with a focus on one specific state and one country at a time.  This particular story features Delaware and the sister city of Kalmar, Sweden which is the sister city to Wilmington, Delaware.  The storybook app designed for children aged seven to nine provides a history lesson in an interactive storybook app featuring animation, song, narration and features Liberty Lane (the primary character), her toy eagle Georgie, her toy plane Truman and her dog Ellie as they adventure around the world.  The app features a “read to me”, “read to myself” and “autoplay” option which brings history to life in this new series.   Liberty Lane helps to explain the tradition of Halloween in the United States and Georgie the Eagle helps to explain why pumpkins have faces for Halloween to scare away the creatures.  The app also includes information about the state such as the state flag and location of the state as well as information about Sweden which includes the language and flag as well as location and information specific to each of the sister cities and the ties between the two.  The author Amber Hood, is a professional voice over artist who is the voice for Dotty in Special Agent Oso and Susie Sunshine in Doc McStuffins.  Read our full review

WORLD OF LIBERTY “It’s Raining Pumpkins in Delaware” created by Amber Hood .


A fun and exciting interactive storybook adventure, about a little girl called Liberty Lane, her dog Ellie.

World of Liberty Adventure 2Liberty Lane is back, this time with an adventure spanning from Chicago to Ireland called Chicago’s Green River Leads to the Emerald Isle.  In this app for iOS, Android and Amazon, Liberty and her friends Ellie, Georgie and Truman explore the United States and discover the connections between Chicago and Dublin, Ireland via a Saint Patrick’s Day celebration.  This is the second in the series of Liberty Lane apps.  One of my favorite features of the app is the way that the graphics weave so nicely with the storyline along with a specific holiday.  We love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in our family, so this story weaved nicely with the holiday..  I love that it connects historical facts in ways that children engage in learning without even realizing it.  My son also liked how Liberty’s laptop turned into a “magical portal” where she and her friends could travel to learn more about other countries and their connections to the United States.  We lived in Chicago for several years, so I loved that the story accurately portrayed the green river and how it led to the Emerald Isle.  I also liked the questions at the end of the story which help children take learning from just an onscreen experience to a true learning experience where they can show that the learned.  Since we had lived in Chicago, my son actually got to see the Chicago river dyed green so he thought it was pretty interesting that Liberty Lane saw that as well.  Read our full review.

Featured App: Furry Friends Run the Show in Toca Boca’s Newest App



On December 7, Toca Boca launched its newest app Toca Life: Pets, the first Toca Boca app all about pets! With more than 120 real-life and make-believe animals, kids can play with their pets IRL and virtually, creating their own worlds and embarking on silly adventures with furry friends.

In Toca Life: Pets, kids are in control of which pets they want to play with and how their pet’s story evolves. Are they bringing their pet along on a family picnic or take their pet to the vet? Maybe their pet is going to a birthday party to celebrate with friends! Kids will train, feed, bathe and entertain their pets while learning what it takes to own a real pet and letting discovery guide their play. Yes, they even have to clean up after their pets, which often takes form as a rainbow colored poop! Kids will explore the five bustling locations, including the pet park, pet hotel, veterinary and more. At the pet hotel, every pet, whether it’s a dog, cat, bird or sloth-bat, will find a nice spot to play or relax while their owners are away. There are secret features to be discovered in the pet park as kids create their own play scenario with their favorite creatures.

Additional features of Toca Life: Pets include:

  • Kids can role-play in five locations: pet park, pet hotel, veterinary, pet shop and breeder’s bungalow
  • 23 new characters for kids to meet
  • Kids can bathe muddy pets and get them clean again, or pretend to be a vet and care for sick or injured pets
  • The pets can be dressed up in fun hats — hats stack on pets stack on hats
  • By building an agility course kids can help train and exercise their pets
  • It even includes surprises for kids to discover — they can pull the branch in the pet park to see what’s hidden

For the first time, Toca Boca tapped fans to help co-create new characters in Toca Life: Pets. The brand received over 1,000 suggestions based on kids’ real and imaginary pets, and from those ideas Toca Boca produced 3 replicas in the new app. The pet rock and sloth bat featured in the app were inspired by drawing and photos from fans and transformed into real Toca Boca characters.

“Sometimes pets are cuddly, fun, weird or even scary. Regardless, they are often a big part of our lives,” said Petter Karlsson, Play Designer. “In Toca Life: Pets you pick which pets you want to play with in your life and decide their stories. As with all of the apps in the Toca Life series, Toca Life: Pets puts kids in the director’s seat to make up their own stories”

Toca Life: Pets features a kid-friendly interface without third-party advertising, free of rules, levels or high scores. Toca Life: Pets is $2.99 on the App Store, Google Play and Amazon . To download please use this link Toca Life: Pets – Toca Boca AB
