Yes, we agree, it's great to see that fellow cyclists share our belief that such a device is necessary!
Guys, these comments are well received - we are hearing what is important to you. We'll implement what we can now and look to add additional features in next iteration.
Looking forward to the front facing camera/light combo as well. What would be great on the combo is to have a clock in both units that can can be sync'ed (wirelessly?). That way in post editing you can stitch the two video streams together easily. Without the sync'ing it could still be done on visual clues, but the clocks would make it easier.
I'd say this confirms that there are a lot of cyclists out there that have been itching for a product like this. At the rate this campaign is going, you'll be able to fund the front facing camera too. Congrats on that, and to echo what others have said, if you have enough money for improvements I'd much rather have a higher capacity battery than SD card. The brighter light is nice too, but it sounds like that's already a done deal.
Any chance of adding a pulsating light pattern, similar to Portland Design Works' RadBot or Danger Zone? My commute involves a few transitions from street to cycle path, and in the winter months when it's dark, riding behind super bright flashing lights is a lot less pleasant than ones that pulse. (Even at the same brightness, the fact that it's not going all the way from bright to dark several times a second makes it a lot easier to take.) I know it'll use marginally more battery, but I think it'd be a really nice option to have.
I'll echo some of the other comments. I'd much prefer a bigger battery and or brighter light than an increased capacity SD card. I'd be OK with you sending NO SD card, and letting me pick my own if that gets me more elsewhere.
Great news guys!! I was hoping there would be a front facing combo in the plans. Looking forward to it! Keep up the great work Andrew, Kingsley.
Hi Guys, thanks for your comments, and I can confirm - the brighter light is happening!
Brighter light and/or more battery mah would be great...........and/or some sort of discount on the front light ;-)
Yes. I want the moon on a stick.
Nice update guys...
Great new guys. Would like to echo what others have said - brighter light should be a priority over larger SD card.
Excellent news! Just for the records, I'd take a brighter light over a bigger SD card any day! I can change the SD card, but not the light.
Congratulations! The brighter light is a great idea and an aid to better visibility in daylight hours. I look forward to receiving my light later this year and to news on your front facing light.
Awesome Kingsley and Andrew! The cycling community will thank you forever!
A brighter light will be fantastic! It would be an even bigger incentive to reach the stretch goal than the micro SD card as the card is something we can purchase on our own.
Keep up the great work!
