The bike lane one is interesting. But can you see the newbie swerving back and forth or even veterans tying to avoid potholes and the divers seeing this lane going back and forth.
The other thing is are drives going to look down to even see it.
How about a laser that tracks, zeros in on the driver's chest (like a rifle laser sight) when they get to close, now that might get them to back off.
I just need enough to tide me over until I need more.

Work: the 8 hours that separates bike rides.
I was more intrigued by the trainer/generator on the Velonews link. It said that an hour of cycling could produce 1/2 hour of electricity to chill my beer in a power outage. There would be the issue of ongoing diminishing returns, but still.
When I ride, the troubles just roll off my back.
