A smart bike light which keeps you safe

Cycling can be a dangerous competitive sport, especially in Singapore where our roads are narrower and sharing of the road with cars and motorcycles can be difficult. This nifty invention or reinvention of the common bicycle light, named Blinker, brings cycling safety to a new level for both cyclists and those around him.

The danger with cycling happens when they are unnoticed during dim light environments, pedestrians don’t know what your cycling intentions are and this applied to cycling on the roads as well. This is where Blinker steps in. It comes in two parts, the front and the rear - the rear Blinker does most of the work.

Blinker’s concept is similar to how LED light indicators work in a motor vehicle. Press a button to indicate a left or right turn and when braking, the rear light lights up to warn other vehicles. Both front and rear Blinkers will light up in synchrony according to your command. The control is by remote control, which would be attached to your handlebar for easy access. When braking, the rear Blinker will fully light up in red to indicate that you have come to a stop.

The most innovative feature of the Blinker has to be its laser beam perimeter marker. This laser beam helps demarcate the space pedestrians and motor vehicle need to give the cyclist due to safety, which is great when cycling in dimly lit places or when raining. In a bid to conserve battery life, there is the option to switch this feature off or on, only when needed.
