The ‘SIGNEL’ (Electroluminescent Signaling Glove for Urban Cycling) integrates an electroluminescent signaling area that follows the physiognomy of the hand. In lay terms it simply means that the gloves glow in the dark and provide illumination so that you can easily indicate your turns, even in pitch darkness.
- A textile switch placed on the forefinger sends an electrical signal to the electroluminescent driver to activate a flashing turn signal.
- It clearly communicates a left and right turn signal in the context of roadway traffic.
The SIGNEL is a Red Dot Award: Design Concept winner from 2014.
