Turn The Stem Of Your Bike Into A High-Tech Cycling Computer


There’s all kinds of cycling computers on the market, which do a number of things from navigation, to distance and speed measurements. But there’s something to be said about Speedforce’s design. It seamlessly integrates into your bike’s overall aesthetics by simply replacing your current stem. That’s right, the stem is the device, and it does everything a cycling computer should do in a fantastically elegant manner.

The elegant, integrated design seamlessly incorporates a GPS cycling computer with a power supply, headlight, and navigation. It becomes the stem of your bike for a full integration rather than as an extra part.

SpeedForce has additional pedal and wheel sensors and a heart rate band that ensure the highest accuracy. With each pedal, SpeedForce can pick up and calculate your riding data: speed, time, distance, track, heart rate, altitude, temperature, and cadence .

SpeedForce can connect to the smartphone app to allow real-time transmission of data to your SpeedForce account in the cloud. The SpeedForce app not only stores data from the hardware, but also gives you access to the SpeedForce community. Here, you can share photos, share achievements, compete and comment on each other’s posts.

It only weighs 349g, so it won’t be adding any heft to your super light vehicle, and you can pre-order yours now for $149.

Combimouse is a Keyboard and a Mouse, Combined into One


There have been a number of modded keyboards and computer mouses released in the market in the last few years, but none are quite like the Combimouse. As its name suggests, this gizmo is basically a hybrid keyboard and mouse that have been combined into one. There are essentially two parts that make up the keyboard-slash-mouse: the left, which contains the keys on the left part of the keyboard; and the right, which contains the rest of the keys and doubles as the mouse at the same time.

The Combimouse is an invention that has been a long time coming. It was invented and patented by Ari Zagnoev in 1999, and has been in development since 2003. Now, a decade later, they’re finally ready to start manufacturing the Combimouse.

Real Or Fake?: A Levitating Computer Mouse


We would like to believe that the above picture is that of a real product. Not because we think there really is a benefit to having a levitating computer mouse, despite claims of it relieving stress that leads to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. But because, really… a levitating mouse?! The Bat, as it’s called, allegedly floats all by itself at 40mm when not in use, and comes back down to 10mm beneath the weight of your 1000g (~2.2-pound) hand. You use it as you would a regular mouse, and… yeah that’s it. It’s a project by Kibardin Design and it’s supposedly under testing at the moment. We’re not holding our breaths to ever see it on the market.

It reminds us of Art Lebedev’s fabled Optimus Maximus Keyboard, which took the world by storm in early 2005, only to later be pulled, prodded and kicked into a workable product, albeit at a ridiculous price and produced for a very limited time.

Hit the jump for one more pic.
