Under Development: EmuLight Vest

As winter sets in, I find myself running in dusk and dark conditions frequently. A number of options are on the market for reflective vests, vests with static lights, and vests with simple flashing lights, but I thought, why not add a bit of style? This leads me to present the EmuLight Vest! This weather-resistant vest features 12 colorful animation patterns with 60 high-intensity full-color LEDs for extra fancy nighttime visibility — perfect for training, or for colorful races.

Status: First prototype

Road tested: 5 miles

Battery life: 6+ hours with 4xAA batteries

Next steps: Half-marathon road test and second prototype
