Mini-laser show to safeguard cyclists
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.
