Cyclist’s Virtual Safety Lane
Do you love cycling? If you have answered in the affirmative, then surely you would do your very best to make your travel arrangements around the rest of the bicycle-friendly public transport around town, especially when there are great distances to travel between your home and the destination of choice. Sometimes, you might have to travel in the wee hours of the morning, or late into the night, and those are dangerous times for cyclists since visibility is extremely low. Well, perhaps if you had the $39.95 Cyclist’s Virtual Safety Lane, things might brighten up for you?
The Cyclist’s Virtual Safety Lane works this way – it is mounted to your bicycle’s seat post, where it will then project a couple of 5-milliwat red lasers onto the ground, which will generate a virtual bicycle lane. This offers motorists with a visual indicator of a cyclist’s riding width, helping you visually increase the safety margin around yourself during those pre-dawn or dusk rides. Oncoming vehicles, as well as those from behind, can actually see you even with their headlights turned on, from over a mile away. The 6′-long lane will begin mid-cycle at the seat post and extends all the way behind, while another 5 more red LEDs help increase your visibility as a standard blinking taillight. The Cyclist’s Virtual Safety Lane is powered by a couple of AAA batteries.
