Turnicator: Intelligent bicycle turn indicator.

Bicyclists have to be extremely alert when riding on the street in order to avoid an accident. When making a turn at intersections or switching lanes, there is always the danger of being hit by a motorist, particularly at night. In order to increase the safety of bicyclists on the road, there is a need for a device that can alert motorists when the bicyclists are about to make a turn or come to a stop. The Turnicator is a simple device that one can strap to the wrist and will blink brightly to attract the attention of motorists when an established hand signal is performed.
