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.
