Since its entry to KICKSTARTER in August, Kent Frankovich‘s Revolights concept been on a cornucopia of media outlets. By day 8 of its listing, donations to the project surpassed the original goal of $43,500. Now at $143,193 and just 5 days to go before donation drive ends, here is another opportunity for you to get involve (and even get yourself a custom set of Revolights) Unimpressive in appearance, though different in the setup, the magic of Revolights shine through when the bike is in motion. The rotations and counter rotations of the LED light rings position a steady light source right ahead and behind the bike. A bit difficult to describe till you see the introductory video (below) about the lights’ functionalities.

Cool idea, but they look hideous for $200-250 USD i'd expect something a lot more pro looking
