Safe Turn – portable bicycle signal

safeturn

If you ever get the chance to trap a cyclist in the corner of the room at a party, and ask him what he really really envies about car drivers, he’ll um and ah for a while, and then eventually reveal it’s turn indicators. Because, much more than shiny fenders and rain wipers, turn indicators are really cool and really blinky. And they can save your life when you’re trying to cross a busy street.

This Safe Turn Portable Bicycle Signal is, as the name implies, the perfect solution to the dilemma of how to mimic the car’s most excellent safety feature. Just strap these onto your wrist, and when you raise your arm to indicate a turn, the tilt switch will automatically start the bright LEDs blinking. Just like the real thing.

You can either buy one and strap it on your favorite hand, or get two and make like a truck. The device contains three ultra-bright LEDs and it will stay blinking for as long as you keep your arm raised. Priced at $9.95 and a night time bargain accessory we’re thinking.
