Picture of the Day: Lumen, the retro-reflective city bicycle
The Lumen is described as the world’s first commercially available retro-reflective bicycle.
It looks good and is waiting on KickStarter for funding:
The inspiration for this project was born out of our daily/nightly city riding. As we passed hyper-reflective street signs surrounded by dark cyclists we asked “Why can’t this technology be applied to a bicycle frame?”
It turns out there was a good reason. Retro-reflective solutions have previously only been available in 2D formats. They could be applied as stripes on the road or as the backing of a stop sign. But this wouldn’t work on a 3D bicycle frame. And then we met the guys at Halo Coatings.
With 19 days to go, it has already passed it’s $15,0000 target with $16,138 pledged.[Via LikeCool]
