Laser Bike LightPosted: January 11, 2014
Riding a bike at night can be a hair raising experience, for both riders and drivers. Even with lights front and back, and reflectors, accidents and near misses happen far too often. Techcrunch.com has a report on an amazing bike light from startup Blaze. It is not only a very bright headlight, it produces a green laser projection of the bicycle up to 20 feet ahead of the cyclist’s actual location, to give a heads up to drivers. Since almost 80% of bike accidents happen whild cyclists are biking straight ahead and a car turns into them, this could really be a boon. It’s rechargeable, and available for preorder for $200.
