Brakepack

BrakePack is just the thing to get if you´re on your bike at late hours, when the visibility´s poor for car drivers to spot you. Come to think of it, it´s a really brilliant idea: a backpack with brake lights and turning signals on the back, just to make sure everyone sees you and knows what you´re up to while you´re on the road. We all know commuting on a bike is cool, green, quick and healthy, but it´s also quite dangerous, we don´t get great protection from the gear we wear, so to be seen is determinant, safety wise. BrakePack uses the type of info drivers are used to seeing and easily processing, it uses an accelerometer that detects if you´re braking, thus lighting up the LED lights built in the backpack, the turn signals can also be activated automatically or just by tapping the shoulder. With the smart backpack you also get an app that pairs with your smartphone and lets you get tons of info and smart travel planning. BrakePack is smart, safe and practical. watch the video
