HOW TO – Make traffic light triggers

Blacksmith_tb writes – “Not feeling ferrrous enough to trip the induction loops that trigger green lights? No problem – just epoxy a rare earth magnet to your shoe! Inspired by a product marketed to motorcyclists, which is basically a big neodymium magnet to stick under your ride. I thought it might be better to get a slightly smaller magnet closer to the road.”Link.

    Just don’t get your foot stuck on the gas pedal or other motorcycle part when you’re riding… neodymium magnets are powerful!

    Pretty lucky that motorcycles don’t have gas pedals, then.
