The principle of crowdfunding
In crowdfunding (crowd = crowd, funding = financing) or swarm financing, developers present their idea on an internet platform. Interested parties can then participate financially in the project - either in the form of donations or by buying and paying directly for the product. After successful financing, production will start.
That's what Apple could have come for: You never have to charge the Matrix Powerwatch. It automatically recharges - not by solar energy, but by body heat. This should particularly interest athletes, because the warmer the body becomes, the more energy it generates. Consequently, the Powerwatch is also the only smartwatch with an indicator for the generated energy output. If we were Apple, we would buy up this start-up quickly!

The operation of the smartphone and the acceptance of calls is completely on the handlebars. The self-activating LED illumination at the back of the helmet provides extra security.
