Biking can sometimes be a dangerous sport especially when you are riding on the busy roads of a city like London, thankfully there are some projects that are looking to make the roads safer for bikers, whilst allowing you to do so freely.
One such project is Velohub’s Blinkers, which is a turn signal system that has been designed for bikes, allowing the cyclist to signal right and left turns before the fact. They also feature a laser lane indicator, which they say will help to encourage drivers to provide cyclists with more space.
The lighting system fits to both the front and rear of the bike and works via a handlebar remote that uses a radio frequency to communicate signals with the lights on the front and back.
You will also find a 200-lumen white headlight on the front module, which is matched by a 100-lumen brake light and class 3R, 5mW lasers. The system also uses an accelerometer and gyroscope to trigger the light when you slow down.
The remote uses a coin cell battery that is said to last up to 6 months, and the lights themselves recharge via a microUSB cable, after which they are said to last up to 7 hours.
