Future Factories Light Bikes
Tooling around London during the upcoming London Design Festival: Light Bikes, designed by Lionel Theodore Dean of Future Factories. "Taking to the streets after dusk, Light Bikes will accompany visitors to and from the major activities, linking major evening events and promoting a city-wide carnival atmosphere"
Future Factories uses rapid protyping techniques to create unique digitally designed lighting products- "it costs the same to produce similar parts as identical ones, so why produce two products the same?" Each bike installation is digitally manufactured and produced directly from onscreen models, a "unique blend of supture and technology"
And, for once, drivers might pay attention to bicyclists! ::Future Factories
