Open Source Wearable Cycling Electronics

Bicloone: [bi:klu:n] n. (high tech) code-name for a classic, elegant yet highly innovative bicycle overcoat projectIntroduction

The concept is to design a coat, or better say an overcoat for cyclists. Through embedded electronics, the Bicloone overcoat offers a couple of useful features specially designed for urban riders:

• LED-based blinker or signal lights device located at shoulder or scapula level

• LED-based break lights device triggered through an accelerometer

• LED-based position lights enabled by a light detector

The Bicloone wants to offer high tech features in a discreetly elegant form, siting somewhere mid-way between Silicon Valley and Savile Row. The third dimension of the Bicloone project could be named 'pattern & sewing'. The Bicloone aims at being an everyday garment that can be worn in every possible situation, whether you are planning a visit to the next OHS or a meeting with your banker to obtain a new loan.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
