Project Aura: Novel LED Lit Bikes for Safe Cycling at Night
Aug 16, 2011
Even though regular bicycle reflectors and flashing lights certainly help drivers see bicyclists, the Aura lighting system is sure to grab the attention of all drivers. In this clever design RGB LEDs are attached to the inside of the rims of wheels. The designers were able to create a color changing light-wheel that indicates when a bicyclist is slowing down or at cruising speed.
In addition, the kinetic energy generated from peddling can be used to power the LEDs, meaning bikers won't have to worry about maintenance at all. We'd say this lighting could be huge for getting bicyclists noticed. As you can see from the video, it's hard to not notice something as flashy and cool as Frier and Ota's lighting system.
