smrtGRiPS - The Intelligent Handlebar Grips That Smarten Your Bike
With all technological advancements in the past years many new gadgets and smartphone apps found their way to the market to help bikers better enjoy their rides! But, and unfortunately there’s a “but” here, most of these new generation gadgets require the raider to take his eyes from the road to consult them.

Here’s where the The smrtGRiPS Smart Bicycle Grips come into the game. Just as the Helios Smart Bike Handlebars we featured earlier, the smrtGRiPS are designed to allow you to interact with your smartphone, receive notifications and follow GPS navigation instructions in eyes-free mode. More than that, once the smrtGRiPS addon is installed in your original bike handlebar you’ll be able to use your iPhone or Android smartphone to find your bike if you no longer remember where you parked it, to connect with other bike riders and get separation alerts when group riding as well find your bike in case it gets stolen.
The smrtGRIPS are in project mode at Kickstarter and you can get one pair for an early bird price of $59. Estimated delivery for July-August 2015.

WhatSim Or How To Chat Free While Roaming In Other Countries
With over 700 million users, WhatsApp is one of the most popular cross platform chatting services around. But, as cool as it is, WhatsApp has a small draw back – it needs an active internet connection to work! And while this is OK while you’re in a WiFi area or you have your network carrier’s internet activated, things are not that simple when traveling abroad. So, what can you do about it and how can you make sure you stay in contact with friends while avoiding huge internet roaming fees?

As of this moment, you can chat with your trip colleagues as much as you want without worrying about internet roaming fees.

While the WhatSim service if free for text chat, you can also use the app’s rich media features (pics, video, voice messages) for extra fees. WhatSim comes in an All-in-One SIM format (Regular, Micro and Nano SIM sizes) and works on all iPhone models and most Android devices.
