"A team of designers from Sichuan University in China has developed an innovative concept cycling light which reveals contours in terrain, allowing the rider to avoid hazards at night. The concept light is designed to improve safety when night riding over uneven surfaces. A grid of light illuminates the ground. Horizontal and vertical lines warp as they pass over uneven terrain, aiding depth perception and helping the rider avoid hazards. The LED is powered by either kinetic energy from rotation of the rear wheel, or by an internal battery. The light has three modes: standard, high-speed mode and team-mode.
The concept won Sichuan University’s Department of Industrial Design a 2013 Red Dot design award.”
Seattle’s Emerald City Comic Con 2014 is just around the corner, and while I’ve been trying to figure out if I can make it to the very first Starbucks to complete my tour of original chain restaurant locations (I went to the first KFC back in 2005, there is a museum attached), the folks at Boom! Studios have been busy with a new set of variant covers! They’ll be offering a handful of Emerald City exclusive covers at the show, and they’re all pretty awesome.
Check our site to see the roster of ECCC variants, including a Nirvana-inspired take on Adventure Time, a new look at Lumberjanes #1, a Punch-Out!! homage for Regular Show: Skips, and a new cover for The Midas Flesh #1 by Sex Criminals artist Chip Zdarsky!
