Hi all, im a engineering student from sydney australia. for our engineering design class we are currently in the process of designing bicycle blinkers. i just wanted to get some feedback on peoples general opinions on this idea.
the blinkers themselves with be very similar to modern motorcycle blinkers although smaller. they will be attached to the seat pole and will be slightly smaller than the width of the average seat. there will be push on-push off buttons on the handle bars. the whole system will run off a 9v battery (or a few AA batteries, not sure yet). these will either be rechargable or use a generator while you pedal. we were also thinking of attaching a horn (similar to a car horn only much smaller) as bells arent very loud. also headlights and tail lights.
i just wanted to know how much people would pay for just a blinker system (not including the horn and headlight), also whether it would be useful at all and any suggestions you might have. this would greatly help us in our report and design.
thank you, marc ragowski.
