Many users often forget to recharge or replace battery-powered bike lights but thankfully Magnic Microlights generate power from simple pedal power. These lights utilize eddy current induction, which means they change the properties of a magnetic field to create electricity in a conductor. This means all energy is drawn from the spinning of a wheel, as the moving tire generates its own magnetic field as it rotates.
The Magnic Microlights are currently up for funding on Kickstarter, with the team behind the project hoping to raise $80,000 to get the product into production. The system has already been tested on a variety of mountain bikes and works with both traditional brakes and newer disk brake systems.
