Yes. The casing is designed to ensure an IP65 grade (veryverybadweather-proof). We will qualify and certify this specification during industrialization. It means that you can use it under any weather condition, drop it in a puddle, no worries. At ASPHALT Lab we ride even when the weather is bad and we want to use HAïKU is these cases… and we will also try it in a glass of beer!
Yes. For direct sunlight the question is frequent when you speak about LCDs displays. We use an OLED display that give much more contrast and brightness than other devices. We also work with our industrial partner to qualify a matte finish of the cover to prevent any reflect.
OLED is a backlit technology so our display looks gorgeous at night. The touchless sensor also provides us the ability to adjust the brightness of the screen depending on the situation.
Yes. If your Messaging app spreads info in the “Notification Center” of your smartphone, then we can display it. Keeping in mind that too much info means too much distraction while riding, you will be able to filter which app may be relayed on HAïKU.
We created an additional mount that you can fix almost everywhere (stick, suction cup or strap), then our magnetic dock clips on top of it and you're good to go! With info on your handlebar and smartphone in your pocket.
Just add 15€ to you pledge.
No. The main features we provide today with HAîKU are shaped in a light, tiny product with long lasting batteries and affordable price. It is rugged and easy to slip in your pocket. If ASPHALT Lab works on another cyclist oriented feature, it will be another product, 100% dedicated to its function, as HAïKU is doing, and doing well !
We want to ship you a fully functional product in May. To do so we will first focus on finishing and scaling the development of the core functions (Navi, Bike computer, Notifications). But ‘opening’ the product to other interactions / developers is clearly on our roadmap. We don’t want to make false promise and we want to do it well. Feel free to get in touch via DM to give your opinion / tell us what you would do / offer help on that topic.
Today, we imagined our product and service around accessible and efficient solutions like Google Maps on Android (that offers a bike specific routing) and build-in our app on iOS through partnership with bike Nav provider. It is simple, fast and efficient and it works to guide your through the city.
For longer rides or country use (road cyclists, travelers or mountain bikers) we know it is important to be able to create our own route and then upload them in the app. Beside we know that OsmAnd is a must and Kommot is great. Next efforts on software development will go in that way.
