Jacket With Turn Signals: Don’T Bike Without It

 |  |  |  |  |  |  May 27, 2010

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.
