The MiniBrake is smart bike brake system designed to increase safety for kids when they're cycling. If you look away for even a second, kids are experts at disappearing from your sight, as well as your grasp and it's not always possible to keep them out of harm's way.

MiniBrake is a two piece remote-controlled system that allows parents to literally put the brakes on a kid's bicycle. There are several safety features worked into the MiniBrake, including automatic stops when the device's battery is low, when kids are further than a 164' range and when there's an object blocking the communication signals between the remote control and the brake.

The cycling safety device is currently raising funds on Indiegogo, aiming to raise a total of $75,000 for the project.
