Product

The LightLane product is a lighting system that creates a virtual cycle path around your bike at night. It attaches to the rear of the bike and generates a line of light on either side of the bike to delineate a personal bike lane area. It is designed to make the bike more visible to motorists in the dark and to encourage cars to keep a safe distance.

History

LightLane was conceived, designed and built by Alex Tee and Evan Grant of Altitude innovation firm. It was originally created as an entry for a design competition to promote commuting by bicycle. Although it did not win, support for the product encouraged its continued development.

The LightLane product is currently in the proof-of-concept prototype testing stage. A final product is expected by the end of 2009.
