With all the new advancements 3D innovation has afforded high performance, pro cyclists of bodysuits to handlebars, it’s refreshing to see the innovation in addition being created for general use. Dave Clarke, a father of two young girls, newly had a revelation, which lead him to create an effective and easy way to ensure his daughters’ safety while riding their bikes through the neighborhood.

Dad inspiration

In the product description of the process, Clarke says, “The iBrake process allows for [my] girls to have the freedom but me the piece of mind knowing which I can stop their bikes remotely of up to 100 meters.”


Consisting of two main parts which include the iBrick, a hovia unit which holds the battery, a Blynk board and a lego brick lid, the iBrake is created to remotely control a bike’s brake process. Clarke explains which by via the Blynk custom iOS app on his mobile phone, he can control the brakes and turn on the twelve LED lights which surround the iBrick. The bright, white LED lights are programmed to flash preceding the brakes have been applied, so as to warn the rider which the bike is of to stop.

Safe and low-priced

The original iBrick hovias were printed at 0.2mm with 20% infill, and the rack and pinion for the iBrake were printed at 80% infill with three perimeters. Clarke says the rack should be printed out as originally oriented in order to prevent the teeth of shredding. Additionally, Clarke advises super-gluing the two racks together for security. All of the .STL files needed to print the iBrake process can be downloaded for free on MyMiniFactory. Users can in addition find a helpful guide here.

All together, the printed parts and extra
materials just cast of £40, manufacturing the process an easily accessible way to store your children safe. If you are yet not convinced of its new capabilities, check out the iBrake process in action at a lower place, via Clarke’s trailer video.
