SEIL Backpack With Integrated Bike Turn Signals

I recently came across a cool looking product: a cycling backpack with built-in turn signals.  The SEIL bag (Safe Enjoy Interact Light) is a backpack with integrated LEDs for bicycle turn signals, flashing taillight and flashing hazard triangle displays.

The design is by Lee Myung Su Design Lab (a Korean firm, I believe), and the bag’s design was a 2010 Red Dot Design Award winner.  The turn signals are controlled by a detachable wireless handlebar mounted controller.

Check out the video below to see how it looks:

I’m a big believer in using bicycle lights for safety, even in the daytime (when riding in the shadows of tree-lined roads, cyclists can be hard to see even at mid-day. I also like the fact that you can signal a left turn without having to take your hand off of the handlebar and sticking your left hand out closer to moving traffic. This looks like a neat product!
