This wearable will help bikers avoid speeding tickets

Woolf

A new wristband promises to let you ride around on your motorcycle like a madman without getting caught in speed traps. This seems like an idea that totally won't backfire. Woolf is a wristband that will alert bikers of speed traps, red light cameras, and upcoming crosswalks using different levels of vibrations.

Woolf utilizes a global speed camera database to keep you from getting tickets. As you approach a speed trap or crosswalk, the company says the wristband will vibrate faster to alert you to slow down. The Woolf app tracks your speed so it knows when you're going too fast, and Woolf says the service will be available in 65 countries around the world.

Sure, there will probably be a ton of people that will use this to speed more often, but with crosswalk, bus lane, and red-light alerts, it may actually make the roads safer for bikers and pedestrians. Woolf is now on Kickstarter, and you can receive one for as low as $110 through an early backer special.
