Now this would be the epitome of an oxymoron, and one of the few times I get to use “epitome” and “oxymoron” in a sentence. I received an email about a kickstarter campaign for FAST, a tail light for bicycles and electric scooters that will alert someone of an accident and warn you if your bike is being tampered with, and among a few other features. The nearly three-minute promo video extols the bike’s safety features. If the bike is left in a horizontal position the tail light’s app will send a signal to the Android phone of an emergency contact. That sounds pretty cool.
But in the video, the rider is not wearing a helmet. Maybe they should work on an app to prevent you from riding your bike if you’re not wearing a helmet.
