The Monkey Light Pro creates stunning images and animations within a bicycle wheel. Once you’re rolling the display fills the bike wheel and is visible from both sides. The Monkey Light Pro is waterproof and durable, and is designed for use on city streets. Display images and animations on your bike wheel. Download your own graphics to the Monkey Light Pro and show them while you ride.

Mount the Monkey Light Pro to your bike wheel and take your message to the streets.

The Monkey Light Pro was successfully funded on Kickstarter. It’s now in stock and available for anyone to purchase. Earlier prototypes of the Monkey Light Pro were custom made for exhibits and developers only – you may have seen one at Maker Faire, Siggraph, Dragon’s Den, EuroBike, SXSW or at a museum.

Download images and animations to the Monkey Light Pro and display them while you ride. Use our Mac OSX or iOS applications to create a playlist with your own graphics, or choose from our collection of custom artwork. Then wirelessly send your playlist to the Monkey Light Pro.
