There is a new bicycle light product called the Monkey Light Pro aiming for your funding on Kickstarter. The innovative lighting product displays animations on both bicycle wheels (specifically the spokes) using multi-colour LEDs.

It is both for the sake of the “cool factor” as well we safety. It can impress people, but it also makes it very clear to other drivers in the dark and in substantially cloudy weather that someone or something is present.

It can even display a full “STOP” sign in the original red and white colour!

Apart from that, notable features are follows:

  • Designed and Manufactured in California, USA
  • Weight: about 500 grams, even balance
  • Size: 520mm diameter, 25mm thick
