HAIZE, the minimalist navigation device for urban cyclists, has reached 100% of its funding goal on crowd-funding site Kickstarter with 5 days left of the campaign. With 5 days still to go on the Kickstarter campaign, onomo, the company behind HAIZE, has reached the funding goal of £50,000.
“We are super excited and happy that we have reached our goal and about the huge amount of positive feedback we have received so far,” said Javier Soto Morras, co-founder of onomo. “Now we can focus on getting HAIZE ready to be shipped to our backers.”
The campaign will still run for 5 days and backers can pledge to secure themselves one of the first HAIZE devices that will be shipped in summer 2016.
HAIZE is a minimalist navigation device for urban cyclists, focused on simplicity. It gives the direction to cyclists with a minimal display that allows the rider to know their direction ‘without need of processing symbols or data.’
The user sets the destination in the HAIZE companion app, attaches the device to the handlebars and can leave their phone in their pocket during the ride. HAIZE can also be used for urban exploring, hiking and other activities using the wristband that comes with every device.
HAIZE has two different modes of working: the compass mode, in which it just works as a compass, pointing to the destination, and the second mode, which provides turn by turn indications.
Key features of HAIZE:
- Two navigation modes: ‘Turn-by-turn mode’ and ‘Compass mode’
- Self-adjusting LEDs for visibility both day and night
- Durable materials and simple design
- Fits on any bike
- Wristband to use HAIZE for running, hiking or geo-caching
