bicycle contrails

This gadget lets cyclists leave a little trail of color everywhere they go! They’re calling it a contrail, and it was designed by Studio Gelardi. The original idea, from their site, as phrased by Doobybrain: By using this device, bicyclists will have a clearer path on which to ride safely and out of the way of vehicular traffic. At the same time, as more bicyclists using the Contrail go over a line created by a cyclist before them, the line gets brighter allowing drivers to clearly see a marked bike path where there might be none. It’s sort of similar to what happens when a dirt path appears in a grassy field after lots of people have taken the same shortcut over a period of time.
It’s a really cool idea- I am hoping people take it up, if only for the pretty colors…
