ROFL haha actually its a pretty good idea , But they should make the color less distracting....... green , Why not plain white light ?

conceptual but yeah interesting idea. Don't think it would work. problem is it only reaches out a few feet behind the bike. YOu need a lot more than a few feet to notify a driver you're there. Having that won't keep them from crowding you since they can't move out of the way in the last minute anyway.

Green lasers project further and are easier to see. Using them was probably the easiest way to get a decent proof of concept together.

In a product, I would prefer red. Green just really isn't used anywhere on the road besides traffic lights. You also typically have a red blinker on the back of your bike anyway so red lasers would just kinda fit better as an enhanced tail light.

Its just supposed to be a boundary marker that drivers could presumably see on the road from a reasonable distance and know how "big" you are. Its not supposed to keep them out of the shoulder so it doesn't have to extend very far.

The more lights you have, the better, but I still prefer a couple of BRIGHT led lamps pointed up and out.
You can see the ones on TheWife's bike from quite a distance.

That is pretty rad! It would be interesting to see how far it's visible.

it would keep going in straight lines in a curve pattern. check the website out, still just looks like a prototype. If it did a full rectangle under the bike i think it would attract more attension.
