Tongue Bicycle rice

http://www.hokeyspokes.com/



Hokey Spokes are transparent "blades" that attach to your bicycle spokes. As these blades spin during riding, a computer inside the blades modulates the internal LED lights so that design images and custom text appear.

A bit but if it stops you being run over then I'm all for it.

hehehe, cool.

i remember reading about a simmilar setup put onto an indy cars wheels to display a sponsors name.

Looks like it would be fairly easy to setup so that you could disply different images on demand. Then if somone cut you off or whatever you could give them a nice big neon F-off.

The "design" of the back wheel looks like an advert for a not-so-legal herbal product...
