COOLIO OR JUST A GIMMIC

I replace my signals with super bright LEDs but this looks cool too. Not sure if I want to be hard wired into my bike MATRIX though.

I saw that last year and it seemed pretty cool. Just not sure how well it works.

Do you have to plug it in when you get on the bike?
Where does the wire run? In the way?
How does the jacket hold up in a crash?
Does it come as a complete unit? Jacket/lights?
Or is it just a couple of lights I stick onto my jacket?
Is it "too much" for drivers behind me? Would hate to have someone so enamored with the setup that they're caught staring rather than braking.

Really cool concept in my opinion though.

^^^^^^

Don't know how old this is, but seems kind of an obvious step in evolution of gadgetry.
Yes - agreed. Lots of questions. Mainly, what type of jacket? Interesting idea on a sweater is a fail. I don't really want to "plug-in".
IMO - being "seen" is high in priority for safe riding, but the number 1 safety device is actively engaging your brain when you're on a murdercripple. (my mom's term)

seems like a better fit would be the helmet, would only need two lights, instead of four (or three at the most)

two for blinkers and the third (if wanted) for brake.

blinkers double as brake lights
