Bike light concept echoes the need to define one’s space on the road.
Bloggers at Altitude have beautifully illustrated a concept for “Light Lane,” a bike light of the future, one that helps cyclists define their space on the road. This has been one of the goals of the Down Low Glow from day one.
The concept light uses a laser to project the lines of a non-existant bike lane on the road around you, along with a clever bike symbol behind you. Meanwhile, the Down Low Glow, which is not a concept, uses a fluorescent light source to project a diffuse cloud on the road, as seen below. I don’t know the relative efficiency of lasers vs.fluorescent lamps, or whether the photo of the Light Lane, shown above, is real is real or a composite created in Photoshop.
