These bike wheels 'spoke' up for UberEats riders

UberEats is using the wheels of delivery bikers as the medium for a series of safety messages in Tokyo.

This video window will play three 15-second clips.

With Ogilvy Japan and Eyes Japan, Uber Eats is using the wheels of delivery bikers as the medium for a series of messages aimed at making drivers more aware of bikes. 

The 'Safety spokes' wheels use "an iconic animated character and colours inspired by the cautionary road signs of Japan", according to the company. The three messages: 'See me', 'Give me space', and 'Care for me'. 

Car drivers certainly wouldn't fail to see bikers if all bikes had such displays. If you want a "gyrostabilised" LED system for your bike as badly as Ad Nut does, it seems to come from this company.
