Lightlane, a prototype device by Alex Tee and Evan Gant, creates a laser-generated bicycle lane of light on the pavement beside and behind your bike, giving drivers a visual cue to give you more room.

Granted, it only really works at night, and then generally under darker conditions, but the concept is sweet.  Developed for a design contest (which they didn’t win), interest was sufficient that they’re moving forward with development.  Despite the picture above, the actual unit is being designed to have a standard red blinky light, and green laser lines on the ground.
