Night Safety Light

You look into the distance past the drizzly dark trees and see a thin shaft of bright blue light. As you get closer you realize it’s a person with a night safety device on their backpack. They are clearly seen from miles away, and with increased visibility at night they have no reason to fear hiking, biking, walking or jogging when it’s dark. Using magnets the user can easily swap out different LED modules to make it their own.

I found visibility in Boston at night time and in inclement weather while walking, commuting, jogging, biking, or skateboarding to be a big issue as cars and bikers would frequently come too close for comfort. Wearable lighting really doesn’t exist yet but I’d love to make it happen. Not only does it super cool and eye catching, but it could save your life or another’s.

AuroraBora Fountain

The AuroraBora fountain throws splashes of light around the room. These dancing and flowing colors mixed with the soothing bubbling sound of the fountain combine to create a unique decor piece for the home or office.

This first prototype was made out of a glass vase from Michael’s, an LED pump found on Amazon, tubing from the hardware store, and glass rocks from the dollar general. It cost me $35 to make, and I sold it in my parents’ shop for $50 after having to mark it down. A polycarbonate molded version would be cheaper while maintaining the amazing light show. Would you be interested?
