Irish company Luna Systems is about to release the new Luna Oculus camera, which claims to harness the power of AI with a new rear-viewing camera for cyclists.

Set to launch imminently at the beginning of June through an Indiegogo campaign, the Luna Oculus is designed to shoot-rear viewing footage as the cyclist rides. The live footage is then relayed on to an app on the cyclist's phone, essentially turning your phone into a rear view mirror, with AI functions.
