Now you can make an artistic statement while out on your daily bike ride with the Monkey Light Pro by MonkeyLectric, which is a Kickstarter campaign that’s a bicycle wheel display system. All you have to do is download your own graphics to the Monkey Light Pro and show them off while you ride! Or you can even choose from their collection of custom artwork. You then mount the Monkey Light Pro to your bike and take your message with you to the streets for all to see. The graphic is visible from both sides of the bike wheel since it will fill the wheel once you’re rolling.
The Monkey Light Pro has four bars of LEDs which are attached together inside your wheel, so as your ride, the system rotates, using Persistence Of Vision to create an image with its 256 full color LEDs. It also has sensors to track its speed, heads-up position and rotation direction. This allows the system to create stable, full-wheel images from 10 to 40 mph.
Cool featured designs include: 8-bit Robots Animation, Retro Tape Deck, Furry Friends Animation and more. More than 10 artists have created artwork specially for the Monkey Light Pro, including David Ope, Yoshi Sodeoka, Devon Penney, Shelley Eshkar, Kevin Kunzman, Natalie Walsh, Katya Popova, Noah Vawter and more. The Monkey Light Pro fits a lot of common bike wheels, so you’ll seriously turn heads when riding in the streets with the Monkey Light Pro on your wheels! You’ll be able to get them if you pledge $795 or more.
