Veloloop triggers traffic sensors for your bike! (Video In Link)
Someone has potentially solved the problem for cyclists stuck at traffic lights. The Veloloop acts as an electromagnet that sets off the inductive loop circle that cars easily set off. Inductive loops are sensors at intersections that tells a traffic light that a car is waiting. With this technology cyclist will be able to move through intersections like a normal car!

@JustinRay Yeah I agree it isn't the prettiest. Hopefully they'll make a smaller design in the future. Something attached to the back wheel could be a good idea.

Most lights now work off of pressure plates. Once you figure out where they are on the road, it's so easy to trigger the lights.
