When I saw the iBike Rider case, I didn’t think of a cool iPhone accessory for bikers – even though that’s what it is – I thought what a cool space suit wearable computer accessory this is instead. And when you consider that the iPhone is just that, a computer that happens to make phone calls, it makes one wonder doesn’t it? I can see the commercials now. Walking on the moon? There’s an app for that. Searching for water on Mars? There’s an app for that…
Okay, fantasy time’s over. Let’s look at the cool reality of this accessory. The iBike Rider Case is a wrist-mounted, waterproof case which is pictured with optional headset microphone for your helmet so that bikers can go easy riding and still remain connected to their iPhone. It’s really pretty cool and I can even see one using this in the car. With it’s clear plastic face, users can navigate apps, make phone calls – the works. And using a GPS app like AT&T Navigator, the iBike makes it easy to follow without taking your eyes off the road much.
It’s completely functional. Keeping it attached to your wrist helps keep the phone safe and secure (unless you lay down the bike, that is).
The iBike Rider case is going $42 while the optional helmet-mounted headset will run at $85.
