Bicycle Barometer: Bike Or Ride Train To Work?

Bicycle Barometer by Richard J. PopeThe Bicycle Barometer by Richard J. Pope is doing more than just tracking the weather to determine the best way to get to work each day – it’s also receiving information about his local rail station (open/close, delayed) and the amount and type of precipitation. Mr. Pope made the Bicycle Barometer from an old clock he found at a flea market and he’s posted information on his site so DIY’ers in the UK can build their own. [OFTCC via Neatorama]

Orp’s creators, Tory Orzeck and his team in Portland, are now looking for funding on Kickstarter. A $45 donation will get you an Orp that will eventually retail for $49.95. [Core77]

The Loud Bicycle Horn Is GENIUS!

The Loud Bicycle Horn from Loud Bicycle.The Loud Bicycle Horn is a great idea that will allow cyclists to share the same sound/warning footprint as a car. Currently, bike riders are only able to alert drivers of their presence by yelling at them or via hand gestures. Here are its features:

  • Sound: is like a typical car horn, both in volume and pitch.
  • Honk: for up to 30 seconds at a time.
  • Batteries: are rechargeable Li-ion batteries that will last 1-2 months.
  • Button: snaps on to either handlebar and honking does not interfere with braking.
  • Weather resistant: works in rain, sleet and snow.

The neutral car horn sound will make the road safer for cyclists by warning drivers without escalating the situation. The current warning system of calling a driver a “shithead” won’t be necessary and instead of offensively giving the finger, cyclist will choose to use that finger and activate their Loud Bicycle Horn. The Loud Bicycle Horn is currently fundraising on Kickstarter. [Laughing Squid]
