See.Sense: The Intelligent Cycle Light

View all 7 Photos

Although it is common and often necessary for bikes and cars to share the road, there are a tremendous number of risks involved. Cyclists are slower than cars, unprotected, overexposed and practically invisible compared to today’s tank-like automobiles. It is no secret that traffic can be a threat to commuting cyclists; See.Sense, created by a team of Northern Ireland designers and techs, combats this issue through the innovative re-invention of archetypal cycling technology. The intelligent cycle light has been designed with “road sense,” allowing it to observe the environment (such as light and road conditions) as well as bike orientation, speed and even your own movements. Whereas typical cycle lights maintain constant luminosity, See.Sense will flash brighter and faster according to custom settings when it identifies a change in visibility or potential danger . Made with CREE LEDs and Fresnel lens elements, the shine is brighter than that of most cars and the radius large enough to illuminate the rider and road from every angle, allowing you to be seen even during the day. Despite its endless functions, See.Sense is also incredibly energy-efficient; powered by a USB-rechargeable lithium ion battery, the light can last an estimated 12 hours. Weighing in at a mere 55 grams and powered on by a motion-sensitive switch, See.Sense is seamlessly integrated to give you a safer and more enjoyable commute. Front and rear lights available here.

While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
