    We kind of like this Blackburn Central 20 Rear tail light for $35. First of all, it's incredibly bright as it measured 31 Lumens in an integrating sphere.

    We've seen the idea of a video-camera-combined-with-blinky light a handful of times over the last couple years, most of them put forth on crowdfunding sites, and nearly all of them failing to get past the concept stage. Fly6 is the exception-it really exists and you can buy it now. Begun on...
