Kickstarter Project: ORP Combines Horn & LED Light, Simple USB Design
Outside of DIY videos, we rarely see contraptions like this. Orp is a new Kickstarter project that jams a light and horn into the same device. Great idea for a Kickstarter right?
Encased in a soft elastomer skin, Orp has two multisetting devices, a USB horn and USB light. Both are powered by a push button on the top of the light. The horn has two settings, soft and loud. By touching the button slightly, a soft 76 decibels are emitted. That’s about as loud as a living room stereo. By mashing on the button harder, Orb emits a loud horn that reaches 96 decibels, as loud as a lawnmower. That should get the attention of most cars.
The light emits 87 lumens with three settings – slow strobe, fast strobe, and constant. If you mash the horn while the light is on, it juices the light up to 92 lumens for safety. Battery life is quoted at 6 hours with constant light, 12 hours with a slow strobe. When it dies, the lithium ion battery recharges via USB port on the rear. Providing funding is met, Orp will be available in Black, White, Green, Blue, Orange, and Glow-in-the-Dark. Retail is set at $49.95 and they’re available on the Kickstarter page for $40.
