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.
