Jacket With Turn Signals: Don’T Bike Without It

by Lambert Varias

The wonders of Arduino never cease. This time Instructables member Leah Buechley used a Lilypad Arduino microcontroller board to make a jacket with turn signal LEDs, which can be toggled using switches on each of the jacket’s wrists.

Check out Leah’s Instructable to find out how to make your own turn signal jacket. If I were to make my own, I’d rather use a bright red jacket with blue LEDs. That way if something goes wrong with the tech – like if it gets rained on or something – I won’t be stuck wearing a black jacket in the dark.
