Title: Revolights. Join the revolution
Author: idrevolights, posted on 5 Oct 2012
Sector: Electrical machinery and apparatus
Description
The arcs of light are formed by LEDs programmed to detect your speed and blink on as they pass the front or rear of the bicycle.

The Revolights bike lighting system (patent pending) consists of two narrow rings of LEDs that mount directly to each wheel using a series of clips and ring spacers. Lithium-ion batteries, bracket-mounted to the front and rear hub, supply power to the LEDs. The batteries are slim and lightweight, and can be charged via USB. A small, fork-mounted magnet and an integrated accelerometer provide speed and orientation data to the rings. This allows the LEDs to illuminate only when oriented at the front or rear of the bicycle.

Revolights ensure maximum safety by providing both lighting and sighting in one fully-integrated, revolutionary design.
