The Vizibelt [2] is an innovative, lightweight and bright LED [3] belt to keep cyclists [4] or any commuter safer on the roads at night [5]. It has many times the surface area of other rear lights and also gives the person side visibility. Available in green, orange and blue, the belt uses just two LED lights combined with an innovative plastic light-carrying tube means battery life is still competitive with smaller, less eye-catching alternatives like under-seat rear LED bike lights. The creators of the Vizibelt [2] have just launched a crowd-funding campaign to put the belt into production.
