In response to the LED headband that blocks CCTV. This device seems a lot like a standard head mounted cyclist light, which makes me wonder how recognizable I am while I'm riding my bike. It certainly would be a more practical way of implimenting this idea (since a band of LED's on my head is pretty suspicious and attention grabbing for anything more than a political statement) It might also possibly explains why they couldn't get an ID on the cyclist who bombed the recruiting centre in NY.
