Have You Heard About This? Lasers & Bikes


The Blaze laser mounts on a bike and projects an image of a bike on the road ahead — like the one you see painted in bike lanes — to help keep bicyclists more visible to cars and trucks.

Maybe we have it all wrong. Maybe the things we thought we should be doing were wrong. What if bike lanes weren’t painted, sprayed, built or laid onto the ground at all? What if everything was laser projected and bike lines, signals and any other form of bike lane identification came from the biker’s handlebars. Yes, we know, batteries and blah, blah, blah, but give this a chance.

Blaze is a new company out of London. They built a laser that projects a bike onto the ground in front of the moving biker. Where the biker goes, the laser goes, and it’s a forewarning system that just may be the beginning of something very cool. An innovation to how bikes are noticed and even further, get noticed.

It’s powerful, too, anywhere from 100 to 300 lumens. Oh, and it’s not just a laser, which, yeah, that’s cool enough already…it’s an amazing light. The flash light system is multidirectional to be able for anyone to see it at almost any given angles.  It’s a safety feature and one that does the job unlike anyone before.

It’s simple. It’s smart. It’s small. It’s easy to use. It’s Blaze.
