Was ist ein Prototyp?

Ein Prototyp ist sozusagen ein vorläufiges Modell dessen, was bei einem Projekt entstehen soll, wenn es sich dabei um ein Produkt handelt. In diesem Fall müssen den Unterstützern Unterlagen zu einem funktionierenden Prototypen präsentiert werden. In dieser Galerie kann der Projektgründer Fotos oder Videos hochladen, damit sich die Unterstützer eine Vorstellung davon machen können, in welchem Stadium sich das Projekt befindet; was bereits erreicht wurde und was noch aussteht. Der Entwicklungsprozess ist zwar bei jedem Projekt unterschiedlich, aber für gewöhnlich gibt es dabei die folgenden Phasen:

Proof of Concept

Untersuchungen, die Ideen und Funktionalität unterlegen.


Weist Funktionalität des Endprodukts auf, sieht aber etwas anders aus.

Geometrischer Prototyp

Sieht aus wie das Endprodukt, hat aber keine funktionalen Eigenschaften.


Sieht aus wie das Endprodukt und hat dieselben funktionalen Eigenschaften, wurde aber aus anderen Materialien oder in einer anderen Art und Weise hergestellt.

Technischer Prototyp

Gleicht dem Endprodukt in Aussehen, Funktion und Herstellungsweise.

What is Shoka Bell?

The bell is a cycler’s most important safety feature and we want to make it even more effective. The Shoka Bell and app provide different ringtones to alert cars and pedestrians. They keep your bike safe with a theft alarm, help you navigate the streets and keep track of your cycling habits and rides.



Shoka Bell features eight sounds controllable by an intuitive joystick. Honk for a car, politely ding for pedestrians, or even record your own message. Shoka automatically adjusts to ambient noise so you can always be heard. Create custom ringtones and download even more sounds free through the app. 


People cycle for a host of reasons. Whether for fitness, fun, commuting or exploration, every cyclist has a common need – safe, convenient navigation!

 Simply connect Shoka Bell to your smartphone and choose a destination. Then navigate through a city by glancing at your Shoka Bell’s indicator arrows. You’ll also be warned of busy intersections you’ll face ahead.


Shoka Bell includes an effective front light. Designed specifically for city use, the 8 front-facing LEDs shine bright enough to get you noticed without blinding other cyclists or drivers. The light automatically adjusts to ambient light so you can always be seen.

Shoka Bell will alert you if your bike is moved. The clamp that remains attached to your bars acts as a motion sensor. When it detects movement it alerts you wirelessly by ringing the Shoka Bell up to 250m away.




  • Developer program for connected cars, so they can see us better
  • Receive call notifications
  • Use it as a bluetooth remote

We’ve worked hard to find a balance of convenience and safety. We’ve ensured Shoka Bell learns the entire time you’re riding. By collecting data from users’ braking patterns and bell rings, Shoka Bell helps you better navigate cities by deciding the safest routes and avoiding busy junctions that require constant bell use or braking.


We designed Shoka Bell to be beautiful inside and out. There is no on/off button – its sophisticated sensors detect your presence. When you finish your ride, it automatically shuts down. This promotes its amazing battery life that keeps Shoka Bell going as long as you do. Shoka Bell is available in six colours: blue, yellow, green, black red and purple. It features a metallic construction and is fully weather-proof.

The Shoka Bell team 

At the heart of Shoka Bell is a collective of keen cyclists who simply want to make cycling safer, easier and more fun! Based on our own experiences, we know being seen and heard can be a huge problem for cyclists. That’s why we began working on a light-focused device. However, we quickly realized a multifunctional device would be the best solution. Shoka Bell was born so cyclists can be seen, heard and shown the safest routes to our destinations.

We don’t just see Shoka Bell as a device that enhances a cyclist’s experience. We see Shoka Bell at the forefront of safety in cycling. By engineering Shoka Bell to learn, we as community will be able to navigate cities in the safest ways possible.

We’ve been working hard last two years creating this new era in cycling. We are now at the final stage in bringing Shoka Bell to life. The impact you can make is extremely important and we need your help now. Your assistance will enable us to produce forms and begin mass production. Join us on this great journey. Let’s ring differently.

Risiken und Herausforderungen

We’re excited to be bringing Shoka Bell to Kickstarter and know that it’ll require a lot of hard work, something which we’re more than ready for!

As with all crowdfunded projects, bringing Shoka Bell to life will be a thorough and complex task as we turn our prototypes into production. There are factors such as sourcing parts and shipping logistics that can cause possible delays. However, our team has comprehensive experience in sourcing, manufacturing and design and we will be doing our very best to bring you the best quality Shoka Bell on time.

Further information can be found in our FAQs. We’re committed to making Shoka Bell a success and will ensure we keep you up-to-date throughout this journey. Thank you for your support!
