Emotions of My Cycle

Like it or not, social networking and emotional status updates have become an integral part of our cyber life. We keep looking for new avenues to express our “emoticons” in the real-world and the Bike Light is one such way. Milled out from one solid piece of aluminum, it encloses an 8×8 LED dot matrix light setup. You can download personalized graphics, animations or phrases to use as the rear light. Why? So that you can let strangers on the road know that you are sad, happy or flirty!

The Bike Dock is constructed from ABS plastic and hooks up to the bicycle’s dynamo using a USB socket in the back of the light. It can even be plugged into a home computer and be programmed via web-based software. You can even socialize and exchange new creations using networking sites like Facebook, Twitter or Flickr.

Bike on with a smile!

  • Funny, I was thinking the same thing, where can I buy this? Not only would you eliminate the whole "hand signal thing" but this could be a major safety improvement for cyclist who want visibility at night…GENIUS!

    I absolutely love the emotional concept, the personalization and the idea of social networking interchange among other users.
    I think it's great!
    I even think that this light is not only a playful emotional status update but also an informative display for other drivers which can act like a blinker or like a direction panel, that contributes to a safer road circulation. It allows infinite possibilities.
    The only "but" that I see is the dimensions and the weight matters. I find it too heavy and too thick to carry it on a bike, you can find other smaller 20 gr. led lights that even make more light, despite your light allows more applications. It also must be always fixed to the saddle bar. Nevertheless, I like it and I think this idea has great possibilities!

    You will need to find a way of actually control what it says on the fly
