What I Wish I Was Wearing: One of the first things we learn about the rules of riding a bike are hand signals for turning. The only problem is it’s not so visible when you’re riding at night. Until now.

Sandra Catalina Chavarro Morales won a 2014 Red Dot design Award for creating the ‘SIGNEL’ or electroluminescent Signaling Glove for Urban Cycling.) Basically, she made an ergonomic bicycle glove with a switch on the forefinger that turns on a flashing turn signal.


The next step in this project is that they’re trying to get to the point of not needing regular batteries by combining them with energy-harvesting devices on the bicycle that can store the energy produced when peddling.
