Most aspects of consumer life are becoming more dominated by technology, so the 'OpenBike' bicycle system looks to take this into account when it come to cycling. 'OpenBike' looks to help connect cyclists, bicycles and bicycle accessories together to make the riding experience smarter and safer.

The 'OpenBike' system was conceived by Randall Jacobs and Kyle Manna, and is designed to be incorporated into bicycles and gear by manufacturers. From here, the 'OpenBike' bicycle system could be used to keep individuals further connected to their gear or operate as a management system for bike-sharing rental companies.

The automotive industry is becoming increasingly digitized, so the 'OpenBike' comes as the next logical step to expand technology further into the lifestyle of urban cycling.
