Mechatronics, a two-year-old Bangalore-based startup and creators of the
‘BluArmor’ range of smart multi-functional motorcycle gear that aims to provide
4-wheeler like comfort and safety to 2-wheeler riders, announced a ‘Series A’
round of Rs 10 Cr. led by Inventus India and KITVEN.

software products targeted at rider-comfort and established a strong
distribution chain in the domestic and international market.

that retro-fits to existing full-face motorcycle helmets. In addition to
cooling the air by up to 15 degrees, BluSnap blocks dust to provide cool, clean
air for the two-wheeler rider. Riders can also bid farewell to expensive
pin-lock visors using BluSnap’s quick de-fog option. True to their motto of
“Build in India, Make for the World”, BluSnap has now been successfully sold in
over 10 countries spread over 4 continents.

shareable travel stories. Using the route you take, the places you stop, and
the pictures and videos tagged to those places, BluRydr creates a travelogue
that you can easily share with your friends. ‘BluRydr’ is a free download
available on the Google Playstore.
