this is awesome


From a list of "Products of The Year" on the New Scientist site comes this- your own personal cycle lane:

Cycle lanes are a good way of keeping bikes away from cars and minimising accidents, but they aren't available on every road.

Evan Gant at the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) and Alex Tee of Altitude Inc in Somerville, Massachusetts, have designed a portable cycle "Light Lane" that straps to the back of a bike.

A laser projects an image of a cycle lane onto the road directly behind the cyclist to remind approaching cars to leave room.


  1. I always wanted lasers on my bike, but they were more the death ray kind. I suppose these will have to do.

    * sigh *

  2. I always wanted a ROTJ speeder bike. Had about three of the toys as a kid and never tired of running through the garden making NEEEEEEEEEOOOWWWWWWWWWWW noises.

    That and a lightsabre. Yeah? I don't ask for much . . . .

  3. Oh yeah- that whole forest section is filmed in day time.

    . . . . oh, wait. My bad.


Feel free to share your opinions of my opinions. Oh- and cocking fuckmouse.
