Speed Vest on the road!

Posted by Erica on Apr 5, 2010 in Electronics, Making |

The Speed Vest went for its maiden voyage today. The video below shows me riding it at night outside my house.

If you can’t see the embedded video, here is the direct YouTube link.

For the record, I can bike faster than 6 miles per hour, but we had to work around the limitations of using a phone video camera and a stationary videographer. Also, I do have a rear light on the bike, as required by law and common sense; it was left off for better visuals. The bright stripes that appear elsewhere are due to reflective tape on my jacket, saddle bag, and shoes. I had never seen them in use before and was impressed with their visibility.

I am really pleased with the Speed Vest’s performance and will definitely use it on nighttime rides. I don’t┬áride after dark┬ávery often, but with bling like this I will be motivated.
