    Default Using the backpack to add to visibility and predictability on commutes

    Hi,
    If this is not an appropriate place for this, do tell me and I'll delete the post. Anyways, for a while I have been thinking of using the back of a commuter to improve safety - since the back is the most visible part of a commuter on the road. A high-visibility rear light is the easiest thing to build in, of course. But I also ended up building automatic break lights and indicators into the backpack.



    From a safety point of view, I decided to incorporate the "Emergency Info" slot and multi-angle reflectors into the backpack:

    I launched this on Indiegogo at https://igg.me/at/Aster. Do tell me what you think of it - do you think this would help make commutes safer? There is a social context to safety of course, but this should help us do whatever we can in our control.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure how I feel about promoting products on this forum but this pack looks pretty damn cool...
