Xfire Safety Light Beams Your Own Bike Lane
September 25th, 2012
There are lots of reflective or illuminating gadgets and accessories for bicycles and cyclists. But this is the first device I’ve seen that not only provides a light, it also creates an impromptu bike lane through the use of lasers.
The Bike Lane Safety Light has two red 0.5mW lasers that beams two lines on either side of the bike. Xfire claims that the lines are visible even under headlights and streetlights. The Bike Lane Safety Light also has Five LEDs to provide further warning. The lasers and LEDs draw power from two AAA batteries.
You can order the Bike Safety Light from Xfire for $40 (USD). I think the laser lanes are way better than rear lights. They’re less annoying or glaring to look at compared to a bright or pulsing rear light, and they give other people a better idea of your position and size. Plus lasers.
