Clip Jacket – Avoid getting clipped

6 Jan

Dont get clipped when riding at night

Dear Internet,  thank you for the inspiration.

This is the same concept as the boink bag but put into a jacket.  All my parts were sourced from sparkfun.com (they rock) Jacket is excellent because the signal indicators tell you what is going on with the lights.  They blink and pulsate while avoiding the “backpack zone” of the garment.  There are two key improvements to this over past designs:   #1 Using a sewing machine with conductive thread makes the circuit better and less prone to failure.  #2 Bringing everything closer to the power supply increases the brightness and battery life.

Thank you again for feedback and sharing.
