Magnic Light

Status: $36,665 pledged of $50,000 goal; 17 days to go

You don't often hear about revolution in the field of bicycle lighting, but that's exactly what German inventor Dirk Strothmann is doing with the Magnic Light. Unlike other magnetic lights currently on the market, the Magnic Light doesn't require you to attach magnets to your bike rims. The powerful lights are powered via eddy currents that are generated, contact-less, when your wheels move. It attaches easily to your break caliper or your wheel hub using two screws. The light doesn't require any batteries; only your constant peddling. If you pledge $200 you get both the rear and front Magnic Light.
