The Flexi-Safety Light Can Be Bent and Fastened to Signs and Boards

 - Dec 13, 2013
Traffic cones, reflective signage, plastic barriers and caution tape are the sorts of indicators currently used to signify road work and accidents along streets and highways. The Flexi-Safety Light is a proposal for a more universal marker that can be conveniently integrated into the existing setup of a roadside site.

David Gatfield's idea is for an innovative type of pylon that's made from flexible OLED panels that are coated in a urethane skin. The result is a durable and doubled-over translucent post that can be bent and curved to fit into a disorganized environment. The Flexi-Safety Light can be stood up along the shoulder of a freeway or magnetically connected to a sign. It can be charged and programed by a control panel in its protective case of six.
