Each glove has an array of LEDs embedded in its back, which are powered by two onboard coin cell batteries

Vorhies suggests that in situations where riders are concerned about being seen by oncoming cars, they should leave their hands on the bars so the arrows are facing forwards
Zackees cycling gloves help enlighten drivers on cyclists' intentions
Head- and tail-lights certainly do a lot to help cyclists be seen at night, although they generally don't let motorists know which way those riders are planning on turning. That's where good ol' hand signals come in. In order to make those signals more visible, former Google software engineer Zach Vorhies has created Zackees illuminated turn signal gloves.
