Crowdsourcing Mornings: Lumos Firefly | The Ultimate Bike Light System

Welcome to the Crowdsourcing Mornings segment!  Every weekday morning, Geek Alabama talks about and features one crowdsourcing project from crowdsourcing sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and others.  The hope with Crowdsourcing Mornings is to feature and help a project be successful and reach its fundraising goal.  Please enjoy today’s featured project!

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:

he unique bike light system features turn signals, brake lights, synchronized flashing and magnetic mounting.  Firefly lights convey far more information than regular bike lights. They can indicate where you’re going and when you’re slowing down. If you already have a Lumos Remote, it will work with Firefly. Otherwise you can purchase it as an additional accessory. Having the flexibility to place a Firefly anywhere is what makes them so useful. No matter how you ride, there’ll be a way to securely attach multiple Firefly to your setup.

Brake lights tell drivers when you are slowing down so they can react accordingly and avoid hitting you from behind. When brake lights are activated, all rear lights will act as brake lights in sync making the warning even more obvious. Brake lights are activated via a sensor built into the Lumos Remote. Lumos Remote is sold as an additional accessory. Place your Firefly lights wherever you like. Since each Firefly carries red, yellow and white diodes, it can act as either a front, rear and/or turn signal light. If you change your mind about your setup, no need to buy more, just switch the position of your light through the app and off you go.

Synced lights spread out across the rider and the bike result in a much larger visibility footprint. It is much easier for a motorist to spot multiple lights moving in unison together and to help intuitively determine the size and distance of the rider so that they can give the necessary space required to avoid a collision.

As of August 26th, this project has raised $721,000 of their $25,000 goal. This project has 49 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $29, you will get one Firefly light.  For a pledge of $115, you will get four Firefly lights.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
