Brake motion / brake light

Brake motion
Brake motion

The Idea of 'brake motion' is based on old fashioned front generator light that works with front wheel. It was pretty good idea because it doesn’t need battery, so called eco-friendly product, but it has deadly weak point that is low in efficiency. Generator needs power on wheel, so when accelerating bike it steals driving force and more human power is needed. I can proudly say 'brake motion' is opposit in efficiency. Braking is all about friction. When braking, momentum is wasted, but 'brake motion' takes that momentum energy that will be wasted and converts to light energy. When braking brake motion will work automatically. It's amazing.
