A Homesense design project identifies which stations have bikes to hire so you know before you leave the house.

Homesense showcases a collection of smart projects, technologies and hacks designed for the home. Russell Davies has designed this bike map for a section of London, showing Barclays Cycle Hire stations where bikes are available for hire. He describes it on his blog:

It’s very simple. If there are more than five bikes at one of these bike stations the relevant LED comes on. It’s a glanceable guide to which way to walk when we head out. It’s going on the wall by the door. No need to reach for a device, launch an app and navigate to our favourites.

A useful way to tell where you can hire a bike from, and it avoids wasting time and getting annoyed when you walk to your usual station, only to find that they don’t have any cycles available.
