Signal Cycling Jacket

April 11, 2008

An American inventor, Michael Chen, living in the UK, has won an international design competition for his Reavtiv cycle jacket, which can change color as the cyclist brakes.
How it works:

The jacket uses an accelerometer to sense movement, changing the colour of LEDs on the back from green when accelerating, then to red when braking.

A tilt switch in the jacket also makes LEDs in the arm flash amber when the wearer lifts their arm to indicate a turn.

Well, that sounds great. 😀 But would the LEDs in the arm stop flashing automatically after the turn? 😕
