Riding a bicycle is a fun way to spend an afternoon. However, if you rely on your bicycle to transport you around town, you know the trials and tribulations that come with it. Keeping up with traffic, watching out for cars that seem to appear out of nowhere, and the ever-annoying twisting around to see what’s behind you if you’re trying to turn. Cars have rear view mirrors, and all of us poor cyclists have to hope that we don’t miss something in the split second we have to check for traffic.
The Owl 360 is very reminiscent of the reverse cameras we’re now frequently seeing in cars. This little camera will let you see what’s behind you so that you don’t have to twist your entire upper body around or try to look at a tiny mirror. It fits right underneath your seat, and has a monitor for you to keep a watchful eye. Just keep your eyes on the road as well. A 3.7-volt lithium-polymer rechargeable battery will keep your camera running for up to five hours. This camera is also weather-resistant, vibration protected, and has a ring of red LEDs that will turn on automatically and flash whenever it detects that it’s getting dark outside. If you’re willing to put it to the test, you can pay the $179.99 when it hits stores.
