A weekend's work will let you install the Cycle Chaser - a dynamic bike light that project patterns of light

The Cycle Chaser is a ‘weekend project' devised by Matt Richardson that takes a Raspberry Pi dynamic bike light and turns it into something even cooler. With this project, which uses a small battery-powered projector, your bike can project animations on the ground behind it that speed up and slow down depending on how fast you pedal.

Like all Raspberry Pi projects, the process is yours to own, from soldering the battery-operated pico projector to the open-source software used to sequence the patterns of light. The software is written using openFrameworks, an open-source C++ toolkit, and it can be directly sequenced to the pins from the code using WiringPi, a Raspberry Pi GPIO library.
