Looks kinda like something from the "Tron" movies. =)

So. They stitched EL wires to a bag, slung a cheap battery powered EL wire power supply under it... and actually use the word "patented" as a marketing buzz word? Wait, they're asking 50$ for this thing?!?

I would be ashamed to be related in any way to a company doing this.

My point is, this is bike HACK. Most readers could create this thing in an afternoon from parts easily bought on the Internet. The best part? It would actually be cheaper. A lot cheaper: You can buy 9ft of EL wire for 8$ on Amazon, and it comes with the battery pack. That they charge 50$ for this thing is almost criminal.

Doing it yourself also allows you to forgo the whole cloth bag, as you can glue the EL wire and the battery pack directly to your helmet. It would be lighter, and probably look better.

I'd do it if only to prove my point, but I happen to be on the other side of the fence regarding bike helmets. Though this gave me idea for my next commuter...
