The Velodroom incorporates an accelerometer and a light sensor
At its maximum brightness, the light can reportedly be seen from a distance of 300 meters (984 ft) from the back and sides
Power is provided by an integrated rechargeable lithium-polymer battery, that’s charged via a USB cable
One charge of the battery is good for 100 hours of continuous use, or an estimated three months of average use
The water-resistant Velodroom easily snaps on and off of the seat post
The Velodroom bicycle tail light automatically turns on and off, adjusts its brightness, and doubles as a brake light
While it’s important for cyclists to run a set of lights when they’re riding after dark, using lights in the daytime also helps make them more visible to drivers. That said, the chances are pretty high that daytime cyclists could forget and leave their lights on when they finish their ride ... plus, they’d go through batteries a lot quicker. Estonian inventor Indrek Rebane has already got those things covered, with his Velodroom “smart” tail light.
