BEACON by LumaGlo is a LED safety light that integrates Bluetooth technology to make the roads even safer places for runners and cyclists who venture out at night.

The beacon system works alongside an app, which lets users choose from over 16 million colors and adjust the brightness of the wearable safety lights. In addition to this, people are also able to set the lights to change color when a text or email notification is received. While all of this is extremely novel, one of the best features of the BEACON is that it when its wearer comes to a stop, the accelerator is able to sense this, and changes its solid-colored LED light display to a blinking pattern, which is a lot like the brake lights on a car.
