MiniBrake wants to make bicycling safe for your kids with remote brake

It’s a problem that all parents probably recognize: how do I explain to my kids that they have to use their brakes? It usually involves a lot of yelling, is my own experience. Or, as three Hungarian student/entrepreneurs from the Corvinus University of Budapest realised, you could also install a remote brake on the bicycle. 

They called it MiniBrake, and here’s how they explain it: 

“MiniBrake consists of two parts: a remote controller in your hand and a mini brake fixed on the rear wheel of your child’s bike. We believe that with our product, parents will have the means to protect their children, enabling them to enjoy riding a bike safely all over the world.”

Minibrake, founded by Bognár Dániel, Szesztay Péter and Szirtes Marcell is one of the 50 best student ventures in the world that will present at the Kairos Global Summit that is being held as we speak in New York.
