Designed to increase safety while cycling at night, designer Mitchell Silva [1] created a clever light system that integrates LEDs [2] into a bike’s handlebar. Dubbed Glo-Bar, this simple idea consists of low-energy lights placed along the handlebars to illuminate the road and improve a cyclist’s visibility to oncoming traffic. The biker can also use the lights as turn signals by simply pressing a button on either side. Thoughtful and low-energy, this glowing set of handlebars will make riding at night a much more enjoyable and safe experience.
