COBI DevKit Demos

How do you want to ride?

For the first time ever you can rapidly build interactive experiences designed for bikes and e-bikes.
Whatever your idea, you can bring it to life with a simple tap of the thumb controller.

Find your friends

The Radar Demo keeps track of your buddies while your ride. Want to meet and ride together? Just hit the controller button.

Send messages

Fire off short messages to your contacts via the Thumb Controller: "I'm leaving now", "Running late...", "Nearly there!" at the touch of a button.  The Ping module helpfully adds an estimated time of arrival using COBI's onboard navigation.

Personalize your dashboard

The Grid demo is a customizable data dashboard which lets the rider personalize the data and level of detail that is right for them. 

Make the connection

The Trainhopper demo keeps an eye on your connecting train for you while you ride - thanks to integration with the Bahn API.  Now you know just how fine you can cut it!
