    Most interesting innovation ever

    Only a concept for now, I'd buy it immediately if it was available (it's cool too!)!

    I dunno, maybe at a very slow speed, but I can't imagine using something like this at fast speeds.

    I think it's more "neat" then it is practical.

    could be good if they can make it for under 50 bucks or so. otherwise a real light is better because this will only tell you the shape of the terrain but won't tell you if it is wet, or if there is ice, or broken glass.

    That's a stupid concept, and you sound like a shill.

    Forgive my ignorance (English is not my main language), what's a shill?

    By the way I think I could make one of these, just by using my Spartan 447nm 1watt laser with a grid generating lens, it should be visible even on top of a 3'000 lumen spot...

    I'm not so sure it's not practical.

    I ride on the road at dusk a lot because of silly things like work. I have my 200 lumen light and it's ok.

    I see this being practical as a peripheral vision thing. You really don't look at the grid, but your eyes pick up the changes still. You then tighten your grip on the bars or something when you see a variance

    I look further ahead than the grid.

    Cost will surely matter. For $200, no thanks. For $40, I'd probably go for it.
