We live in an age of streams. Our music, content, movies and social interactions are available on demand to enrich our experiences throughout the day. Thanks to the 'Internet of Things', soon objects will become streams as well. Capturing data and giving feedback, allowing for all new kinds of interactions. Ridley is using these technological possibilities to build an entirely new type of smart bike. We helped them to define the experience design and build exciting services around it.
