Manuel Saez recently launched an Indiegogo campaign for a smart electric bike that helps you better plan out your morning commute. While cycling to work can be a difficult and dangerous task, the 'CMYK 4.0' is designed to get you to your destination quickly and safely.

The CMYK 4.0 is designed to make the rider more aware of the surrounding environment in order to make the ride safer and more enjoyable. The bike is connected to an app that operates while you ride. The app shows you everything from GPS navigation to your currently pedaling speed. As you are riding, the bike will collect road data from other cyclists in order to provide you with a crowdsourced map of street conditions. The more people who use the smart electric bike, the more accurate and detailed the road maps will become.

Not only is the CMYK 4.0 great for mapping out your morning commute, it is also extremely portable. The bike is lightweight and collapsible, making it ideal for transporting on a crowded bus or subway car.
