The largest contributing factor to cyclist safety is visibility. NIGHTRIDER is a cycling jacket combined with wearable electronics to produce an intuitive experience where a cyclist's intention to turn and slow down is better communicated to drivers.
The NIGHTRIDER app also supports route navigation (safer route vs faster route) which is communicated to the driver through peripheral light guidance on the rider's wrists.
The NIGHTRIDER app itself also facilitates PayPal payment for the purchase of the jacket itself, navigation expansion pack, and payment of ad-hoc repair services; the social element in joining "Bike Pools" to find out the location of cycling groups riding home together; and the activation of hazard lighting - so that riders are highly visible when attending to tire tube changes.+ View the App
Fund early. Respond immediately. Your pledge helps us detect natural disasters early and fund the response immediately.
Connected smoke detectors are placed outdoors, in bushfire prone areas. Your pledge is recorded in our system for disaster days.
When a fire is detected, the people closest to the scene are notified. Using the response.fund app, they validate the fire, provide photos and any other information.
Once the emergency response teams declare an emergency, your pledge is withdrawn and the funds are released for the effort. This means real money, in real time.+ View the App
