Hokey Spokes: LED Text Display on Bike Wheels

Hokey Spokes: LED Text Display on Bike Wheels
 
 

Hokey Spokes are transparent "blades" that attach to bicycle spokes. As these blades spin during riding, a computer inside the blades modulates the internal string of LED lights to produce design images and custom text.

The user can decide on the number of spokes and a variety of colors they want to place on the bicycle wheel. Up to 6 "blades" can be placed on each wheel. The more blades, the more visibility and persistence of vision at lower speeds.

The blades actually synchronize with each other by communicating with each other via an infrared communication scheme during spinning. Therefore, you can pass along a message to another rider simply by placing your wheel next to theirs.
The Blades are programmed with a Palm OS software.
One Hokey Spoke sells for $29.95 at Hokey Spokes site.

This is similar concept like the Text LED Message Mobile phones we reported about.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
