FireFly LED Shell


If there are two things cyclists have to worry about, they would be the weather and making sure cars can see them. Thatís why the designers at GeoSpace Studio set about building a vehicle to resolve both issues. The FireFly is a recumbent tricycle outfitted with an LED-lit dome that keeps the rider visible and protected from the elements.
It looks pretty cool but not on the market as yet.

Stolen from Trike Asylum

I don't know it was intended to ever go to market. Looks like more of a home project using small diameter aluminum tubing and doped dacron. Possibly with a Zzipper handlebar fairing as the canopy.
