Car horn for your bike

Hi folks, this is an X-Post from the industry news section so I apologize if you have already seen it.
I'm running a campaign to make compact car horns fit for bicycles so you can alert drivers and prevent accidents.

This is the link to the kickstarter page: Car horn for your bike

We have over 200 people signed up so far but the project won't move forward unless we get enough orders to make a large production run.

You can also help by getting some of our awesome stickers which really describe the change in perspective that bike-car horns herald.


Thanks so much for your support and I'll be glad to answer any questions,

Happy biking!

Question for you, to clear some matters up.

What's the story with your friend that you mention in your video?

You show a ghost bike, which implies your friend was killed due to a collision, but then there's a rumor floating around your friend is actually alive and well which would make the idea of showing a ghost bike a bit. . .

My friend is indeed alive and fine. It was difficult to present the gravity of the situation without making the video too heavy. That particular bike is a memorial to a friend of a friend that was killed earlier this year at MIT (link below), an extremely sad story as they always are.
