Former University of Brighton student Emily Brooke has once again made the headlines in a BBC News article looking at hi-tech accessories in the cyclist safety market.
Brooke’s product BLAZE is gaining worldwide recognition for it’s inventiveness and simplicity since it took crowdsourcing website Kickstarter by storm. The BBC article highlights other bike safety products such as the Hovding ‘invisible’ helmet – a bicycle helmet worn around the neck that deploys like an airbag when impacted.
There’s no doubt that hi-tech accessories will improve safety to a very vulnerable commuter market, and hopefully BLAZE and such products will achieve this sooner rather than later.
The BLAZE Laserlight is available for pre-order now from HERE (shipping January 2014)
