As opposed to an indiscreet bleeper?

Being as this a product from the UK the indiscreet bleeper swears at other road users in your choice of snooty faux-french, an unfathomable Irish brogue or Cockney rhyming slang.

The US version is held up because integrating the "Yo-Mama" feature requires more memory and a rudimentary AI.

Exclamation Warning about bleeping...

Careful... Bleeping could get you slapped, on the face (or in jail).

Default ‘Blink’ Helmet

Copy and pasted from http://www.scdc.kr/e/gallery/f_14.htm

"
‘Blink’ is an innovative helmet that allows the rider of bicycles to drive safe in the urban environment, also by night.
‘Blink’ protects the user in a safe and active way, by indicating the direction that the user intends to turn to,
in order to prevent accidents.
When the user wants to turn right, he simply touches the right blinker on the helmet to signal with its blinking light,
telling the others of the right turn. Tapping the right blinker once more, the light will stop.
One blinking side excludes the other side. he high position of the light devices on the helmet amplifies the visibility
of the bike and its rider: a front LED light and a rear LED light, integrated in the helmet, add extra safety
and remove additional accessories.
"

I'm thinking that this could be easily kludged with tap lights.

Does anyone make a low profile "tap to activate" style of light for bikes?
