We're all used to the concept of having black boxes, or data recorders, in aircraft, and have started coming to terms with the fact that such systems are being introduced in cars. But could black boxes have a place on the humble bicycle?
The makers of Rideye certainly think so. This tiny gadget, touted as a data recorder for your bicycle, is fitted with a high-definition camera with a wide-angle lens that allows it to capture everything that occurs on a rider's journey.
Rideye has 4GB of internal memory, which is enough to capture an hour's worth of video – probably just about enough for most commutes. However a special 32GB model is also planned, which can record up to 10 hours worth. Both versions record in a continuous loop, with the footage being saved when you turn the system off, or when accelerometers inside the device detect a crash.
