Broadcast Your Ride

A system from Ericsson was demonstrated at CTIA that broadcasts your ride. We’ve been posting about auto-moblogging bikes for 2-years now, considering the tech during Intel Developer Forums, and then rode around on a Purple Pedals bike last year. Ericsson’s on-bike system seems rather bulky, but the idea is the same: Broadcast location, photos, and video. It uses IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) as an example of future Wireless video mashups.


My take is first to make sure that I can get around town without dropping a call, having it sound terrible, or reliable G3. THEN start working on cool bike gadgets. I also expect to see robust, waterproof Netbooks attached to bikes at some point.
