It's crazy to think of all the cyclists out there not using bike lights, but now it can be as easy as turning on one's phone thanks to the Monocle by Studio KMD. This handy app and accessory effectively turns the iPhone 5, 4 and 4S into a bike light so that no one can complain about going out of their way to purchase one.

Essentially, the Monocle by Studio KMD attaches itself to the iPhone and turns the flash into a bike light using a red filter. The user can control how fast this red light blinks through the app as well as how long it stays on so that it turns off automatically for forgetful individuals.
