Glo Bars: headlights for your bike

Even with some pretty decent lights on my bike I always wonder if that driver about to turn out of that corner can actually see me, which must be a similar thought to that which went through the mind of Mitchell Silva, Industrial Design student at Massachusetts College of Art and Design when he came up with the idea for the Glo Bars.

These are essentially LED handlebars, with lights embedded into cut-away sections of the bars themselves and powered by a watch battery.

Apparently they aren't strong enough to go into production yet, on account of him cutting away half the pars to fit the lights presumably, but when they do, I reckon they'll end up as essential equipment for riding on the evening roads.
