LONDON CREATIVE AGENCY LAUNCH 'TROTIFY', A CROWDFUNDED INVENTION TO MAKE YOUR BICYCLE SOUND LIKE A HORSE
Startup creative agency Original Content London have launched a unique device made from wood and coconuts, which -in the style of Monty Python- allows cyclists to make the sound of a horse as they ride.
A tongue-in-cheek addition for the urban cyclist, Trotify arrives flat-packed for self-assembly. The device drives the two halves of the coconut shell together to produce a convincing 'clip clop' noise that warns any nearby pedestrians of the oncoming bicycle.
The creators have appealed to the online world to make their invention a reality, setting a target of 1000 pre-orders by Christmas.
Web users can find more information, including videos of Trotify in action, at Trotify.com where they can choose between payment tiers of £4.99 (tote bag), £9.99 (Trotify tshirt) and the full £19.99 which gives the donator a Trotify of their own.
