The Rear Blinker includes most of the safety functionalities. The Front Blinker is synchronized with the Rear Blinker, and it incorporates a strong white head light. The Rear Blinker also has a red braking light to warn the vehicles behind that you are braking.
Two green laser beams are projected to the ground, creating a safety perimeter around the bicycle. They can be activated and deactivated with the remote control so you can optimize the battery usage.
The Blinkers are automatically activated once you attach them to the mounts of your bicycle. They also have a light sensor which measures the ambient brightness. You can set your Blinkers on the 'smart light mode', so that the intensity of the front head light and the rear position light varies in order to ensure maximum visibility.
All these functionalities are controlled from the handlebar by an ergonomic remote, easily reachable with the thumb. The middle button activates the laser.
Blinkers have a rechargeable battery, which you can charge with a micro USB cable. The current prototypes are using 1,600mAh Li-ion batteries, which translated into usage hour means that if you use the Blinkers for 1h a day, you only have to recharge them once every week.
The Rear Blinker starts at 49 Euro (~$55) through a just launched Kickstarter campaign by a team of Swiss students. Release of the Blinkers is scheduled for February of 2017.
