Turn-Signal Gloves Keep Cyclists Safe At Night

The greatest gift to cyclists since the helmet.

Classic hand signals might work well during the day, but what happens when the sun sets and drivers can’t tell the extension of your arm? One Kickstarter project might offer a solution to the ongoing dilemma of roadside safety. After leaving his post at Google, Zach Vorhies introduced a wearable blinker light that is suitable for nighttime cycling or any other after-dark activities. The Zackees Turn Signal Gloves are your typical bike-style fingerless gloves, but with a built-in LED light on top of each hand.

When you want to signal a turn, simply snap the contact pads together and an orange blinking arrow will show your intent. The gloves are designed such that bikers can signal without having to take their hands off the handle bars. The gloves are battery powered – users can choose between regular or rechargeable coin cell batteries. For $69, this practical accessory could save your life in a sticky situation.
