All I want for Christmas is a safety laser that creates a virtual bike lane

Check out this cool video of a new type of bike light that I came across over at CBC.ca (email subscribers can view the video on our blog).

I don’t know whether drivers will naturally view this as a “virtual bike lane” (to me it looks more like the jets on the Starship Enterprise), but in my opinion anything that makes a cyclist more visible to traffic is probably a good thing.

While I haven’t tried it, the unit in the above video can be purchased for $39, which seems like a reasonable price for a good bike light in any case.  I’d love to hear what people think of it in the comments.

    A laser line indicating the bit of road you expect to use seems reasonable, especially if cars can festoon themselves with sequential BLINK-tag turn indicators in the name of safety.

    How entirely spiffy. It looks very clever. I wonder if it could somehow be mounted to a horse’s tail-wrap, too, to make it usable for other forms of non-automotive locomotion.

    But if it is moving with the bicycle, how can the auto drivers double-park there and block it?

    That is the coolest thing ever…I want one! Anything to make us cyclists safe, I’m in favor of!

    I want one for the car, projecting a line perpendicular to the road in back of the car to establish a ‘no tail-gating’ zone.

    If these catch on, the roads at night may look like a Flatland version of Vegas as we all try to be noticed in a spiraling arms war of laser effects. Speaking of effects, can’t we have lasers that simply cut off portions of objects intruding into our defined space?
