Light not only to illuminate the front of the bicycle but also to avoid colliding with the car from the side "DING"

Two-thirds of a bicycle accident is not a case where the car collides from the back or the front, but because it is a case where the car crashes from the side, not only in front of the bicycle but also in the car approaching from the side by lighting directly under A light that can inform you of the existence of a bicycle is "DING"is.

You can see how DING differs from normal bicycle light from the following movie.

Cycling is getting more and more popular every day, and now it is about twice the population enjoying cycling compared to five years ago.

However, for cyclists, the road at night is very dangerous.

Therefore, "DING" is a light that made it possible to illuminate two places in front of and on the bicycle using two beams.

DING was created by ideas as one of the developers hit a car while running down the street. The developer who was in charge of the accident had attached a front light and a back light to the bicycle, but it seems that light collided from the car that came from the side without seeing it. Two-thirds of the accident of a bicycle does not collide from behind or from the front, but the car that turned direction as stated above collides from the side.

So, this is DING. Two lights for lighting the front are pending.

Design and structure can be seen by moving the following images around.

As shown in the figure below, DING illuminates the front and beneath the bicycle ride. Forward lights produce up to 400 lumens of light and lights that illuminate directly create up to 150 lumens of light. Because the light in front is stronger, you can obtain a clear view accordingly.

Actually wearing it on a bicycle looks like this.

Below is the image from the top when you are actually traveling. I firmly illuminate the lower part of the bike ride, so it is easy to notice the existence of the bicycle even if the car runs from the side.

The size is height 42 mm × width 53 mm × depth 75 mm, the weight is about 100 g. It's compact so it's convenient to carry.

There are six modes of light: "Hyper" "Track" "Low" "City" "Daytime" "Limp" There are also six modes, you can change the brightness of the light according to the situation, . The battery is 3.7 V, 2500 mAh, it can be lit up to 6 hours depending on the mode, the battery is rechargeable, it takes about 5 hours to fully charge.

It is convenient to leave the holder attached to the bicycle and insert the main body cautiously so you do not have to take the trouble to take out the tool all the time to charge. The holder is designed to be fixed to the bicycle with a silicon strap, it is adjustable in length like a belt, easy to install.

In addition, DING is currently seeking investment for commercialization with Kickstarter of the Cloud Funding platform. At the target amount of 80,000 dollars (about 9.8 million yen), we have successfully gathered more than $ 76,000 (about 9.3 million yen) at the remaining 7 days until the deadline. A body with ¥ 120 dollars (about 15,000 yen) scheduled for sale at 85 dollars (about 10,000 yen) - Holder with a strap - You can get one DING set with a charging USB cable set, this is 200 Limited place It is 16 frames to be left at the time of article creation. As soon as the $ 85 frame is filled, the same can be earned for $ 95 (about 12,000 yen), and if you increase the contribution amount you can get 2 sets or 3 sets as well. In addition, when it is necessary to send it to Japan, it is necessary to pay about $ 15 (about 1800 yen) separately, and the shipping schedule is in October 2015.

The deadline is 21:00 on Saturday, June 27, 2015 in Japan time.
