Rael: a road bike with a rear view camera! [via bicycle design]

Rael: a road bike concept by Evan Solida

I have posted about Evan Solida’s Cervellum Hindsight digital rearview camera a few times in the past. In a post last August, I mentioned that the concept is moving forward and will be ready to ship sometime this year. Accident recording capability is something that people hoped for in earlier versions of the concept, and Evan explains that it will be available in the final product:
Accident recording, a patent-pending technology, is done by continuously recording loops of video both for ward and behind the bicycle. With the integrated G-sensor, the Hindsight 60 can detect large impacts and will cease recording 10-seconds after any major shock, leaving the cyclist with actual video evidence of whatever occurred leading up to the accident.”
