Video: Monkey Light Pro to colour up your biking experience
THIS video shows Monkey Light Pro in action, displaying the animated graphics on your bike wheel when you peddle at a certain speed.
Monkey Light Pro uses colourful LEDs which are attached to the inside of your bike wheel, and as you ride the system rotates producing a graphic or animation.
As described on their site, ‘The Monkey Light Pro has sensors to track its speed, heads-up position and rotation direction. This allows the system to create stable, full-wheel images from 10 to 40 mph’.
From the video clip you can see a number of different designs that have already been created like; a space invader, lines of fire and a cute kitten.
On the Monkey Light Pro site it informs you that you can download your own graphics and show them while you ride.
The idea of being able to project your personality onto your bike is great, but it is also a great help for motorists to be more aware of cyclist in the evenings when its dark.
