Revolights, Litre Light Field Cameraand the Turtle Shell Boombox
What these bike lights lack in brilliant lumens they more than make up for in shiny cool. Revolights deliver a full 360 degrees of high visibility. On each wheel, the Revolight rim has eight 35-lumin LEDs, with removable, rechargeable batteries. A pair of magnets and a built-in accelerometer lets each LED array be synchronised with your speed, blazing out patterned arcs of light front and back.

Litre Light Field Camera
Taking a Lytro snap doesn’t capture a frame in the traditional way. It reads information about where the light is travelling from, the “light field”. Then it stores all this data and allows you to focus your shots after they’re taken. Weird. And amazing. The Lytro is at its earliest stages of development, so there are shortcomings. The viewing screen is too low a resolution to do other than shoot and hope for the best. And the output is moderated through Lytro’s own software. Still, the first time you retro-focus on a different part of an existing Lytro image and it goes pin sharp, dropping everything else to soft, it’s pretty mind-bending.
