You might have a great love for cycling, but there are also safety concerns for you to think about. After all, the bicycle is not the largest vehicle on the road, and if you were to ride at night, lowered visibility would work against you. Hence, it is always important to wear the right clothes at night, including a reflective vest of sorts. This particular Indiegogo project that is known as the Supaheroe happens to be a high tech safety cycling jacket that would help you stand out from the rest of the crowd, literally. Designed by Wolfgang Langeder and engineered by Fraunhofer IZM and Stretchable Circuits, it will cost a whopping $1,850 a pop which would clearly put it out of reach of many people.
The sporty looking Supaheroe’s main advantage would be its soft, flexible, washable circuitry which will be able to conform to your body comfortably, and just in case you do not have that kind of cash to throw around, there is always the $200 light belt and $400 bag for you to make use of. Right now, the Supaheroe requires a whole lot more funding in order to become reality, so you might want to drop by and give them some love, financially speaking, that is.
