We generally don’t write much anymore about crowdfunded products, but we’re big fans of flag football, and this one looks too cool to resist: LED and fiber optics laden jerseys and balls for nighttime play.
AfterDark jerseys come in Youth and Adult sizes and are lit with fiber optics and fiber optic flags. Balls and field definition cones are lit with LEDs. The jerseys have a “quarterback mode,” which causes them to flash after a programmable delay of 3 to 7 seconds.
A two-player set, including a ball and four cones, costs $119. A set for 14 players (seven on a side), a referee jersey, 2 footballs and 18 cones, runs $900. Expected shipment: June 2016.
