I Actually Want Those: Bike Wheel Light Animation Kits

I posted about Monkey Lights back in 2009, and now the company's back with a NEW AND IMPROVED version with cooler animations. I want to be able to spell out words with them, and I want the front wheel to say, 'IF YOU CAN READ THIS' and the back one, 'DIE SCUMBAG!'. The new Monkey Light Pro system is currently a Kickstarter project, and the bad news is it costs $500 for the four light bars required for one wheel animation. So that's a cool $1,000 to get both wheels animated. That's a lot of money. Unless -- UNLESS -- you're using it to advertise your business. Then it's a tax write off. New plan -- front wheel: 'HANDJOBS', back wheel: '$5'.

Hit the jump for a couple more gifs and a worthwhile video with even more animations.

Thanks to my pal Terry, who's always making fun of my fixie even though he used to bike all the time but now just sits on the couch drinking beer and growing rounder.

    hmm...I do like the previews 2 & 3. Great idea for improving one's wheels. :)

    Well, some of those designs almost gave me a seizure.

  • Guest

    The technology is not new, but the designs are. Pretty cool, but not sure I'd use most of those.

  • You could have a bouncing boob on each wheel...if you wanted.

    The temptation to download some obscene .gifs off the net and ride hell for leather through the town centre would be insanely strong!

    These are Awesome! A bike messenger could write them off as a business expense if he makes it show the service's phone number while he's working. Other than that they are way to expensive except for only the most well to do hipsters, who are really just posers.

    Oh look, another ginger hipster.

    I heard that gingers have no Soles...... how do they pedal a bike?

  • JJtoob

    Soles are easy to come by.
