Rudder sources street light data to brighten the night-time pedestrian experience

Navigation apps have done wonders for our daily commutes and weekend road trips. We can get from point A to point B faster than ever, but sometimes the fastest route is not always the one we feel comfortable taking—especially at night. This is why Bearbone Studios has developed Rudder, an app that functions as an urban night light, helping you navigate to your destination via the most well-lit path.

Taking a stroll through the midnight air can also be quite a lovely experience—a time to stretch your legs or perhaps get a bit of self-reflection in. But no matter how safe our cities are, walking alone at night can be a bit intimidating. Founder and designer Hannah Dow tells PSFK:
