Even in the friendliest of bike cities, motorists and cyclists aren't always on the lookout for each other. And that can pose safety problems, especially at night.
Silicon Valley inventor Kent Frankovich has set out to make cycling safer, putting a spin on the old-fashioned bike reflector. He's developed a design that makes it easier for bike riders to see and be seen by mounting LED lights onto the bike's wheels. SmartPlanet catches up with Frankovich to check out his invention, Revolights, still in development.
