Riding one's bike in a crowded metropolis can be incredibly dangerous; that's why The Blaze bike laserlight was invented.

"79% of cycle accidents occur when the bicycle is travelling straight ahead and a vehicle manoeuvres into them." The Blaze laserlight hopes to solve this problem by alerting cars and pedestrians to a biker's presence. The Blaze bike laserlight is essentially a small flashlight that mounts securely to the front of your bicycle, however unlike a traditional flashlight, the bike laserslight shoots out a green laser that "projects the image of a bike 5-6 metres onto the road ahead," according to its site.

The Blaze bike laserlight has the potential of saving the lives of many cyclists by alerting people to a cyclist's presence in their blind spot.
