Mini-laser show to safe­guard cy­clists

The Witness - Wheels - - BIKING -

A study by the UK’s Trans­port Re­search Lab­o­ra­tory shows 79% of bi­cy­cle vs car crashes are the car driver’s fault, be­cause they did not see the cy­clist. Now prod­uct de­sign stu­dent at Univer­sity of Brighton, Emily Brooke, has cre­ated the Blaze Laserlight as her fi­nal-year project. The bi­cy­cle head­light projects a laser im­age of a bi­cy­cle onto the road about six me­tres in front of the rider to alert driv­ers in cars. Four years and one suc­cess­ful Kick­starter cam­paign later, the Laserlight is now avail­able to buy­ers in North Amer­ica.
