Have a look at the video:
If you can't see the video, take a look at it here.
But where I live, you can't leave your bike with cool led-lights on it. The lights will mysteriously disappear in a matter of minutes. So I wanted to make a bike light that:
- ... you can wear and take with you
- ... makes you get noticed by the traffic
- ... is more or less water proof
- ... makes you considered being cool by others (if you can't be cool wearing the gear you make, then what's the point of making it? ^_^)
Stuffing an inner tube with electronics is a bit like putting a ship into a bottle: It can't be done, unless you know the secret. The secret for stuffing an inner tube is to flip it inside out. Then mount the electronics, and then flip the tube back, with electronics and all.
In the six following steps are over 50 pictures of the making of the Flip-flop-inner-tube-bike-light. Comments are added to most of the pictures. Have fun making your own inner tube bike light!
