According to Mexican startup Tuibo, over 3,600 cyclists get injured every day. Though it might not help if miss a jump on your favorite downhill course, in an urban environment, being visible and signaling when you’re going to turn can be very helpful.

To this end, the team created a light-up vest controlled by a rubber sleeve that goes over a bike’s handlebars. This control-gripper uses Bluetooth to signal LEDs on the back of Tuibo acting as tail lights, or to sound a horn if installed on a wearer’s hip pocket.

Tuibo also employs an onboard accelerometer to automatically detect braking, and can mount a front 100-lumen headlight module as well. Everything is powered by a 2200mAh battery, which can last for roughly five to eight hours per charge.
