Backpack Enables Cyclists To Deploy Turn Signals With Their Chins

Backpack Enables Cyclists To Deploy Turn Signals With Their Chins

Hands-free signalling system makes it easier to stay safe on the road.

Ross Brooks

Known across the internet for his interesting creations, Ben Heck has turned his attention to the world of battery-powered backpacks and providing cyclists with a more intuitive way to signal.

Made using simple layers of material, the battery-powered backpack is equipped with LED lights that blink for 20 seconds in the form of arrows – there is even a cute little robot to help get the message across to drivers.


It’s extremely straight-forward for user to use “left” and “right” turn signals while cycling – all they have to do is move their heads in the corresponding direction, and flip the signal switches with their chins.

So, instead of risking your balance – and safety – next time you’re out cycling, it might be a better idea to invest a little bit of time on this battery powered backpack to make use of “hands-free” signalling.
