Looking to circumvent a citywide bike lane injunction or avoid bike lane-related Community Board histrionics? Alex Tee and Evan Gant from the product design firm Altitude Inc.
have a novel solution for you: Use laser beams to project your own lane
from the back of your bicycle. Gant tells me that he and Tee developed
their LightLane
concept for a design competition aimed at encouraging bike commuting.
For now, the idea exists only on paper but the duo has received so much
positive feedback, they are planning to build a prototype.
