2.      Hokey Spokes
Yes, this gadget is as cool as it sounds. This makes a boring safety light into a really trendy light image and text on your bicycle wheels. I told you, it is quite cool. As soon as you start pedaling, the 16 built-in LEDs light up into images and form the “LED art”. Bring out the artist in you!

Accidents happen all the time. Things become a little more complicated for a cyclist because there’s a high probability that if you get into an accident, you’ll get through by the skin of your teeth or maybe end up losing a few. Your saviour in such a situation can be the ICEdot Helmet Sensor. Its tiny yellow dot detects accidents and sends an SMS to your emergency contacts. It is truly a life-saver!
