Wireless 'Bicygnals' give the right signals

Front and rear lights are connected wirelessly.

Bicygnals

As we were just saying, bike technology is doing its best to catch up with car equipment, especially where LED devices are concerned. "Bicygnals" are no exception, and they provide important safety features to boot.

No ordinary turn indicators, these ultrabright front and back LED units are connected wirelessly by radio waves so they'll blink simultaneously as needed, according to Shiny Shiny. The absence of wires comes in handy for another reason: It's easier to pull them off the bike to take with you.

We applaud the effort, but we'd still like to see a version with emoticons .
