Lighting Project

If you like riding your bicycle during the day, but have a fear of riding at night because it's dangerous, Project Aura may be able to help.
The biggest limitation of front and rear headlights are when a car approaches you at an intersection from a 90 degree angle, they aren't able to see you if your lights are facing straight ahead. Project Aura emits light perpendicular to the rider's direction, which will give approaching automobiles a heads-up that a bicycle is approaching. They are powered by an internal dynamo hub and change colors based on velocity.
Plus, these lights look ridiculously cool!

  1. Very cool! I just bought two of these LED spoke lights: http://www.niteize.com/collections/led/products/spokelit
    I guess you can buy them at Walmart. I got mine at Mountain Chalet in Springs. Only $8 each!
