Thought You Knew 2012: Chicago Bicycle Chick Pinup Calendar

Ahhhh… the lovely image of a pinup riding a bicycle! Skirts tend to fly as the pedals spin faster, an experience some of us are all too familiar with. But most pinups are only posing as cyclists. Photographer Kim Capriotti and illustrator Jana Kinsman have taken real female cyclists from Chicago and transformed them into pinup fantasies. Toss $20 into the Kickstarter kitty and nab yours today!

Project Aura: Bicycle Safety Lighting System

Project Aura is the brilliant innovation by Ethan Frier and Jonathan Ota, industrial design students at Carnegie Mellon University, who address the safety issue of nighttime cycling.

Research has shown that the most dangerous time for cyclists to ride is between 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. By increasing the ‘overall presence of bicycle from all directions,’ Project Aura hopes to eliminate the number of collisions involving cyclists.

RGB LEDs are embedded in the front and back rims of the bike, powered by a front hub dynamo. The LEDs in the rims change colors based on how fast you ride, red when you slow down to white when you increase to a cruising speed.

For more information and to see the LED rims in action go watch their video: Project Aura: Bicycle Safety Lighting System.
