Cycle light pointer towards cyclist
Normally cycle lights are set up to point away from the cyclist, towards the cars in front and behind. Whilst bright, these lights typically provide a small point of light. An alternative, to provide a greater lit area, would be for the cyclist to wear reflective clothing, and have the light sources pointed at the cyclist. This way, the whole of the cyclist is illuminated, providing a larger shape that's more visible and interpretable by drivers. This will be particular effective with a flashing light.
The importance detail to get right in the design of this system is to ensure the light illuminates the cyclist whilst not blinding him/her.
And obviously, this design will be superseded by the soon to be commercialised light-emitting clothing.
