Cycling in a city is dangerous enough as it is, and cycling in a city at night especially so, which is why the designers at Uncommon Goods created the Turn Signal Commuter Backpack. The bag is embedded with green LEDs that form directional arrows, alerting surrounding drivers and other cyclists to the riders' intentions.

The arrow on the Turn Signal Commuter Backpack is controlled via a small device riders attach to their handlebars. The controller has simple, intuitive buttons for selecting a right turn, a left turn, or a stop, and the bag displays a forward arrow the rest of the time. The backpack also comes with an integrated brake sensor, so it will automatically flash red when cyclists stop suddenly, even they didn't have time to react and press the stop button.
