Glow

First Semester project
-
my first project at Kunstuni Linz, the topic was just one word: Greifen [eng. "grab"]
-
I decided to do a bike light
Above are two pictures of my final model with actual functional lighting, but the battery and LED-Controller for this model was hidden in the base
I chose to do a bike light for the daily commuter, because I wasn't satisfied with the current solutions because they either needed two parts or needed two hands to mount properly
I used a a really simple mechanism
-
a combination of a regular clamp and a threaded rod in the middle so if you twist the light, the housing moves toward the clamp and therefor closes it down, which ensures a tight fit on the bike handle
-
The LED ring is RGB + White so you can either use it as a front light or back light, with just the push of a button
-
Thanks to the round design it can be used vertically or horizontally in the front or back
