Runbell: The most annoying device for the world’s most annoying people

by | 9th, February 2015

To accompany the crack of your knees, the thump of your heart and the panting, you joggers can get ringing. Or a-ringin’. Because Runbell is a the pedestrian early-warning system that alerts walkers, dawdlers and people enjoying the peace and quiet of a park or beach to your presence.




How does it work? Well:

Pedestrians commonly complain about being overtaken by faster runners – instead of yelling out “COMING THROUGH!” or surprising them warn them with the pleasant sound of a brass bell.

Why can’t they just carry a brass bell?

Like lepers.

Now they can!

The Runbell ring looks like something a cock might wear because it is something a cock might wear, although not in the sauna.

Runbell adds:

A sleek, stylish wearable bell for runners, solving the problem of how to courteously warn pedestrians on shared pathways

Nothing says courtesy better than ringing a bell at someone minding their own business. It’s the equivalent of honking a horn as you weave in and out of a traffic jam. It is the guaranteed friend maker.
