Title
(EN) LUMINESCENT BICYCLE
(FR) BICYCLETTE LUMINESCENTE
Abstract
(EN) A frame-supported vehicle, such as a bicycle or the like, has at least one frame component made of a light diffusing or fluorescent translucent or transparent material to form a leaky light pipe, and at least one light source in light communication with the frame component, whereby light propagates within the frame and is visible from outside the frame by diffusion or fluorescence or a combination thereof. The bicycle is highly visible at night, and may carry logos or other indicia that are enhanced by the background illumination, which may be redirected out of the tube.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un véhicule porté par un cadre, tel qu'une bicyclette ou analogue, qui possède au moins un composant de cadre fait d'un matériau diffusant la lumière ou fluorescent translucide ou transparent, afin de former un conducteur dégageant de la lumière, et au moins une source de lumière en communication lumineuse avec le composant de cadre, la lumière se propageant à l'intérieur du cadre et étant visible de l'extérieur de celui-ci par diffusion, fluorescence ou une combinaison des deux. La bicyclette est très visible de nuit et peut porter des logos ou d'autres éléments visuels qui sont accentués par la luminosité ambiante, qui peut être redirigée hors du tube.
