Why hasn’t anyone done this before? Orp: The Combo Bike Horn and Bike Light
Introducing Orp: a super-sleek and loud combination bike horn and bike light. Tory Orzeck, a former industrial designer at Nike has applied his skills to bicycle commuter accessories and come up with this clever gizmo.
Did I say loud? This little clip-on beeps out at 96 decibels.
I know someone who would love to receive one of these in his stocking! Much nicer than the super-practical Lump of Coal
BikePretty Santa was planning on giving.
On top of that, it's USB rechargeable and comes in six spiffy colors, including glow-in-the-dark!
Unfortunately for holiday shopping, the Orp only exists in prototype form on Kickstarter.
You can learn more about the project here. Don't watch the video until after the 1:06 mark, when they've gotten the scary stuff out of the way.
If the project is fully backed by the February 11 deadline, estimated delivery is September 2013. Can't wait!
