Safety of the bicycle riders in the night is always subjective due to lack of security system with the traditional bikes. Designers Kent Frankovich & Adam Pettler designed 'Revolights Wheels' to overcome this. "The wheel-mounted LED lights not only provide greater illumination of the rider's path but also make a bike far more visible from the front, back and the side. Initially the lights flash in a simple sequence and when you start peddling they form a solid arc of white and red light." Magnet attached to the fork and an algorithm create the dazzling effect and measure the wheel speed to tell the lights when and where to flash. The system is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery housed in the wheel hub. Looks for funding again at kickstarter. [Via CNN]
