=v= Here's an interesting gadget:

It's a little one-wheeled trailer that attaches to your bike's
seatpost (sort of like an "alley cat" that kids ride on), so
that you have a display of electric lights with you, everywhere
you go.

=v= A few years back, some folks in San Francisco Critical
Mass did something like this with "Cool Neon" electroluminescent
wire:

The stuff is lightweight, so they could set up a display over
their bikes' rear racks with two pieces of bamboo. They rode
as a school of salmon swimming upstream:

=v= Putting a light display on a one-wheeled trailer is a nice
innovation, perhaps especially if there's a kid riding it!
