It's every cyclist's nightmare - it's dark or getting that way, you have just given a hand signal, but will other road users have seen it? In order to increase the safety of the bike riders, a design student from London has envisioned a jacket by the name "Reactiv.

This futuristic piece of clothing has an accelerometer built in to detect the speed at which the wearer is traveling. Secondly, there are LEDs placed on the back side of the sleeves. Thus, with the help of the accelerometer, these multi-colored LEDs flash green when the biker is accelerating and red when he or she is braking. Also, if the biker wants to take a turn, by simply waving his hand sideways, the LEDs glow orange, indicating the turn to the people behind.
