MonkeyLectric Monkey Light – Trippy Lightshow on Two Wheels

monkey-electric-bikeThis post that I saw on Boing Boing should be of interest to you folk out there that self-propel themselves on two wheels.

Monkeylectric have unleashed a lighting system comprised of LEDs that attaches to your bike spokes.

This will then allow you to displays patterns and even words as you ride.

It’s essentially a AA battery-powered 256 RGB system that straps to a bike’s spokes and has a sweet spot of between 8 and 20 mph: At 8, you’ll just start to see the patterns in the center, and at 20 the light show will have taken over your entire wheel.

It’s fairly customisable but it does have limits as you have to use the on-board buttons to alter the patterns rather than loading images via USB or whatever.

Monkeylectric Monkey Light is available now for $60.

Go on – create your own mobile mini-rave – you know you wanna 😉
