    The projector will make night biking safer by illuminating potholes and textures in the road ahead.
    The projector will improve bike safety during night riding by projecting an array of square grids onto the ground just in front of the bike. The grid design will deform on the rough surface of the road, making it easier for the rider to pick out obstacles ahead, such as sudden potholes and bumps. In contrast, a traditional bike lamp will often cast shadows on the concave and convex areas of the ground, making it difficult to accurately read the terrain. The illuminated grid will also add an extra level of visibility to the cyclist, helping to reduce collisions.
