Just one more reason I wish I was in Vegas this weekend…
PRESS RELEASE: Dahon will be demonstrating its latest line of personal electronic cycling accessories at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas from January 7-10, 2010. Dahon will be featuring these products as well as its latest award-winning urban-cycling platform at the booth of MiniWiz, its consumer electronic accessory design partner.
On display will be Dahon’s BioLogic ReeCharge. The BioLogic ReeCharge, developed together with MiniWiz, is a portable battery-pack/charger that uses the excess energy generated by a dynamo hub while cycling to power most portable consumer electronic devices that can be charged via a USB port, including iPhones, iPods, cell phones, and GPS devices.
“As bikes play an increasing role in transportation, there is a greater need for them to integrate with our everyday lifestyle,” stated Joshua Hon, Dahon vice-president. “And that includes our need to power mobile gadgets. The ReeCharge, which comes standard on our Ios XL and Speed TR models, allows people to tap into the free, green energy they generate with a dynamo hub to power their personal electronic devices. We expect this type of functionality to become more important as more people take to cycling as part of their everyday routine.”
Also on display at the MiniWiz booth will be Dahon’s BioLogic Bike Mount for iPhone, a weatherproof case for iPhones that can attach to a bicycle or motorcycle handlebar. The Bike Mount for iPhone features a silicone liner that prevents water ingress while providing shock resistance. A welded touch-sensitive membrane allows full touchscreen functionality. The mount also pivots so riders can use their iPhone in portrait and landscape modes. The Bike Mount is designed to work with the ReeCharge so people can run iPhone apps that use GPS while riding, without worrying about running out of power.
If you’re lucky enough to be there, check them out in booth North 4410.
