Sugoi’s Pixel Tech, Night Riding Superhero Jacket Creates Blinding Safety

first_imgSugoi has taken night-riding visibility to a whole new level with “Visual Technology” called Pixel. Bid adieu to any “subtle, reflective accents,” say hello to blinding brightness. Flash past the break to be stunned and impressed…(batteries not included, or needed) Don’t let the already-established model name fool you. The 2014 version of the Zap jacket employs Pixel fabric tech; it’s Sugoi’s full re-think on nighttime visibility. Pixel comprises the entire base fabric of the Zap line; no longer are reflective capabilities constrained to discrete piping or accent strips.Pixel fabrics create “explosive illumination” when reflecting, and that verbiage appears to not be over-hype – just check out the video for proof.The Pixel technology is not being limited to the Zap jacket. Sugoi’s new shoe covers (Zap booties) almost eclipse the jacket in their stunning brightness. Keep your cadence high enough and motorists will think they’re seeing a superhero blow by in a blur of light.As Sugoi says, the Pixel fabric “only reveals its hidden power when it’s struck by artificial light.” My two take aways: a) there is hidden superhero power in this tech, and b) we no longer have to wear those crazy, road-sign, hi-vis colors. Yay! (Projected availability is not till September, US price TBD.)last_img read more

This Day in History: KKK member Robert Chambliss was convicted for…

first_imgOn the day in history November 18, 1977, Ku Klux Klan member Robert Chambliss was convicted in the Birmingham, Alabama, church bombing that killed four little Black girls.A witness identified Chambliss as the man who placed a box of dynamite underneath the stairs of the 16th Street Baptist Church, where the girls and dozens of others were attending Sunday school services. Carole Robertson, 14, Denise McNair, 11, Cynthia Wesley, 14, and Addie Mae Collins, 14, all died in the blast and 23 others were injured.Chambliss was arrested and tried with murder on Oct. 8, 1963, but was cleared on the murder charges and sentenced to six months in jail for having the dynamite and $300 fine. Civil rights leaders rallied for justice for the little girls, and with the help of Alabama Attorney General Bill Baxley, the FBI reopened the case to reveal evidence against Chambliss not used in the original trial.In November 1977, at 73 years old, Chambliss was re-tried and convicted of the murders and sentenced to life in prison. He died on Oct. 29, 1985. Bet.comlast_img read more
