Monkeylectric Monkey Lights Make Bike Wheels Fly Through the Night in a Splash of Color
February 17th, 2009
Here’s a great way to pimp out your bicycle without having to give it a metallic banana seat or stuffing those sparkly pom-pom things into your handlebars.
MonkeyLectric’s Monkey Lights snap onto the spokes of your bicycle and provide an amazing, colorful light show as you pedal through the streets at night.
You’ll have no problem being seen in the dark with a couple of these strapped to your wheels. Although you might end up causing an accident as drivers are mesmerized by the trippy kaleidoscopic patterns.
Each MonkeyLight is a self-contained circuit with 32 super-bright full color LEDs, and comes pre-programmed with thousands of dazzling lighting effects and patterns. Plus, MonkeyLectric offers a full schematic and instructions for installing your own applications, in case you want to hack in your own designs.
Just tie-wrap a Monkey Light board to each of your bike’s wheels, pop in 3 AA batteries, choose your lighting patterns, and watch it go as your wheels turn. The faster your tires spin, the cooler the effect.
You can grab the Monkey Lights for $64.99 (USD) per wheel over at the MonkeyLectric store.
