Two years ago a pair of cyclists were rear ended and the driver was apprehended because one was riding with a GoPro. In that interim, many similar stories of cameras capturing antagonistic drivers have also surfaced. So two Australian cyclists have developed the ultimate safety device for cyclists. Their product, the Fly6, is a combination of a tail light and an HD720 POV camera.

The LED light weighs 105 grams and will have a USB re-chargeable lithium ion battery. Run time varies, but expect a minimum of 5 hours with the light on max. Video is taken at 720p because 1080p footage would consume storage faster. The unit comes with an 8gb microSD card uninstalled, but swapping in a 32gb card will allow you to record up to 8 hrs of footage.
The campaign has 25 days to go, although the Australians have already exceeded their goal of $95,000. If you’re interested, you can still pick up a Fly6 here for $129 AUD. Units are expected to ship in May, and suggested retail is slated to be $170 AUD.
