Ring's gesture recognition is precise enough to identify letters written in mid air

The Revolights Arc knows how fast you're going, and shines accordingly

Revolights is a bicycle lighting system that first came to our attention three years ago, in which the front of the front wheel lights up to serve as a headlight, while the back of the rear wheel illuminates to act as a tail light. While it's a clever setup, at US$229 for a full kit, it's not cheap. That's why its designers have just announced a more affordable alternative called the Revolights Arc, that combines a tail light and wheel-speed-activated brake light.  Read More

Though they offer great convenience for last-mile travel or as an option for inner city commuters, as well as easing the stress on overcrowded roads and public transport systems, to say they involve high performance machines would be a bit of a stretch. ShareRoller is a portable electrical motor designed to build on the practicality of shared bicycle schemes by adding a little power and removing some of the legwork from the mix.  Read More
