I could see a good use as a GPS driving directions type of gadget. I don't see too much need in knowing your speed though. I haven't seen too many cops ticketing bicycle riders for speeding.

Also, I didn't know Mulder was a biker.

I'm a big fan of DIY and this is very creative, but I'm a little bemused on the utility.  Cutting-edge bike techies will buy anything, but as a non-cutting edge biker I would never put a distraction like this in my headlight.  I would much rather maintain awareness of my surroundings than to know I was going exactly 15 mph when that cabbie broadsided me...

Great post.  I know several guys who are really into biking and speed racing.  I mean they do 45 or 50 miles on weekends;  for around here with the hills, is insane.  They love it though. I agree with Charles, this concept will be picked up quickly when the hardware designs are solidified.  Adding GPS is a definite must and will provide value-added to the entire concept.  Could also be made an option.  I'm sending this link to my friends to get their "take" and will respond when they get back to me.  A great idea.

@Muray: Indeed and if you know how to make use of AI it will help you in a great way. I think this is a great start and hope it will continue to pick on from this point onwards.

I agree, Al. It's a great article and a great idea. If I were going to bet on a technology that will get snapped up by the marketplace, I'd bet on this. I think this guy has something big here. Like you, Al, I also like the other apps, especially the heart rate monitor.

Excellent article.  I agree that there seems to be potential interesting iterations of this technology.  Google maps and heart rate monitoring seems like great ideas, and it sounds like  you could provide a complete set of "dashboard intruments" to potentially measure speed, distance, etc.
