Or one person, at the very least. Jack O'Neal of Portland, Oregon is currently seeking funding to develop what he's calling the YouTurn. It's a glove embedded with lights that interprets your hand motions and signals appropriately. It sounds a hell of a lot safer than waving at drivers, even if you're a super skilled cyclist. Not every driver will be keeping an eye out for arm motions, and not all of them will even know what they indicate. By strapping lights to your hand and flashing them to turn, you're speaking the same language as the people in the big, scary cars. And when you're riding up against literal tons of projectile steel piloted by people who might not be used to your bikerly presence, it's probably good for everybody to be speaking the same language.
O'Neal is seeking to raise $50,000 by September 24th on Kickstarter. A $50 pledge will not only put him that much closer to his goal, it'll reserve you a pair of the sweet blinkers, too. Bump it up to $300 and you'll get a limited edition prototype handmade by the inventor. $500 will get you the prototype and a dinner date with Mr. O'Neal himself. You'll also get the fancy title of "executive contributor". Nice. The project will only be funded if Jack hits his goal, and anyone can donate a minimum of a dollar from now until the end of September. Head on over to Kickstarter and show your support for bike safety innovation.
