Apple, Urban Biking, and Ubiquity

I came across a brief note about one company's efforts to tap Apple's iPhone as a tool to expand the ubiquitous environment concept, using the device as a heads-up display for bikers.

The application and gear is experimental, and the product thus far isn't all that impressive. But the idea is promising. And heck, how can you not want to read an online blurb that starts with this line?
"If the future could be somehow wrangled from an abstract concept and transformed into a city, that city would of course be Tokyo."
