"Rayo, our first product launched on Kickstarter, was a huge success. 1,593 backers funded it and gave the world its first bicycle light infused with drone technology. Since then, we have been shipping Rayo all over the world revolutionizing safety and convenience. This time, we are back with a light for everyone. DAZE has been developed with the new era of micromobility in mind. We believe not only runners or cyclists but also electric scooters, electric skateboards, and shared bicycle users will love DAZE," said Seonhyeok Kang, CEO of Hauteworks.
DAZE uses AI reactive lighting to analyze movements, reacts to them and takes alert actions. It adapts its blinking pattern and color depending on the movement. DAZE's wide-angled light flashes explicit red when on wheels and emits a unique neon-cyan light on both sides when running or walking. Additionally, the smart, intuitive light also reacts to speed and direction. In "motion reactive" mode, a significant motion triggers the alert action—light blinks brighter and faster when making sudden movements like swapping lanes or stopping to enhance visibility.
Featuring super-fast charging using a supercapacitor, DAZE charges to full power in only three minutes when plugged into a USB-C port. Its supercapacitor not only charges much faster than the typical lithium-ion battery, but it can also be cycled (charged and discharged) up to 100,000 times, which is 200 times more than these batteries, significantly boosting the lifetime of the product.
With its full-face clear cover, frontal COB, and side LEDs, DAZE is visible around 270°, providing optimum visibility no matter which platform it's mounted on. It's also crushproof, watertight, dustproof, and impact-resistant. Using the Universal Mounting system that needs no fancy screwdrivers, DAZE can easily and instantly be attached and detached to bikes, bags, shirts, or carabiners in seconds without a fuss.
"Everybody agrees that when it comes to safety, lights are important. But, most people don't bother to use them because they think they are lame. If you search the internet, you'll know they are right. DAZE is different. It makes you look good and also feel good. It wasn't easy, but we pulled it off. Initial feedback has been nothing but positive. Now, we are really excited to show DAZE to the world," said James Lee, Product Designer.
