For riders who have been involved in accidents or fear of a hit-and-run accident, the Rideye will help to record these incidents. The concept was created after the inventor's friend was involved in a serious hit-and-run accident.

The Rideye acts similarly to an airplane's black box, but this time for your bike. The device is simplistic, with a touch of a button it begins recording automatically, and another press turns it off. It is made up of lithium cells and high quality power management systems that allow the battery to stay alive for 24 hours. The actual quality of the camera is high definition and can store 2.5 hours of video; to prevent non-capturing, when the memory is full, Rideye automatically removes the oldest footage to make room for new recordings.

Upon detection of a crash the video will stop and save. Movements are captured at a rate of 1,600 times per seond, so you can be sure you will capture every moment.
