Meet the environment-sensing bike light that's bright in more ways than one."
See.Sense actually uses "advanced, patent-pending sensor technology to monitor you, your bicycle and your environment." It will make you visible for other road users in all types of conditions. Like when you are at a road junction or on a roundabout, passing through urban traffic, passing by a car with headlights and also through an overpass or in a road tunnel. It will automatically detect the situation and adjust the flash rate and brightness according to the environment.
