A little late to the party (as usual) but I think the article said it uses 4 lasers to project with, probably using POV to create the arc.highdelll said:I'm confused, too, at how does the laser project a full circle? where would that mount?
Ahh would probably help out a bit....highdelll said:I'm confused, too, at how does the laser project a full circle? where would that mount?
It seems like there would always be something blocking portions of the beam - wheels, rider, etc...
And would that set off the horns? or how do the sensors detect crap...I see alot of false positives and whatnot - anyways, I found it to be curious.:thumbsup:
Lights, like helmets, high visibility clothing, gloves, etc. are not cool. I guess since you didn't know that, your not cool.ong said:This system needs more powerful lasers to pop the tires of cars coming within the 3 foot circle.
About half the night cyclists I see here in lovely Portland, OR don't have any lights at all. I really don't get the mindset that spends $400 on colored deep-V rims, but can't justify a $20 set of blinky lights.
Lasers aren't really designed to endure a constant duty cycle, unless they have some sort of active cooling going on, such as a Peltier cooler (yeah, 40W of power drain right there), and even then the lifespan is pretty short. Otherwise, it might be a semi-decent idea.highdelll said:
