Here’s SEIL Bag, a Red Dot Design Award 2010 winner by Lee Myung Su Design Lab. SEIL stands for Safe Enjoy Interact Light and it’s basically a backpack equipped with an integrated LED display which you can control via a small, wireless remote. Now, this helps you easily interact with people behind you when you bicycle in traffic such as turn left/right, stop and so on. If there’s no turns or stops you want to communicate you can always have it show animated, happy emoticons, of course.

I really like Chris Bigham’s Bike Shelf, a solid walnut wood shelf suspended by a solid steel square rod mount able to hold both your bike and whatever else you want to put on top of it. Probably the most elegant wall mount bike storage solutions I’ve seen and I want one!
