Clothes that use LED's for flare are usually intended to create a "look at me" reaction. But Leah Buechley, has designed what appears to be a practical use for clothing that lights up. Shirts for bikers that flash turn signals. The way bikers are hunched over the handlebars, wouldn't it make more sense to have the arrows on the butt?

Implications - There's always a risk factor when people are biking on the road with cars. With the number of people using bikes in big cities, it's become even more important for companies to integrate safety features. Enhanced safety featuures will prevent accidents from happening and alert drivers to be a little more cautious on the road they share with cyclists.
