This incredible innovation by French tire manufacturer, Michelin, will ensure safe riding for the two wheel riders at night time. The device is called Bikesphere, and is a laser orb machine that creates a ring of light around the cyclist to alert the traffic overtaking the cycle.

The device can be attached to the handlebars and uses light and proximity sensor to “intelligently” detect the environment and change the light intensity. So if a car approaches, the laser projection will intensify to alert both the cyclist and the driver. The double laser spotlight outlines the safety area around the bicycle and enables the incoming drivers to react in time and avoid any accidents.
