KUSA - This edition of Gadgets includes something new to make that next bike ride a little bit safer.


Zackees is a new product designed to revolutionize the way people exercise and ride the streets: electronic turn signal gloves that keep the user completely safe in the road, while being fashionable too.

Here's how Zackees does it:

Riders don't ride more often because of the fear of being seriously hit or killed by a car. Two problems are that drivers aren't aware of what the hand signals mean and bikers don't often don't wear safety gear because they are uncomfortable or ugly. These Turn Signal Gloves gives cyclists a safety option, and drivers an unmistakable cue that they are sharing the roads.

A patent-pending, nickel-plated steel contact switch forgoes the need of a button. Makes activation intuitive. The gloves see up to 2 months of battery life with regular use, and has super bright high efficiency LED turn signal for turbo visibility. Ambient light-sensor that controls illumination to preserve battery power.

Zackees is launching through Kickstarter. Consumers can purchase them through this link:
