The Orp Smart Horn was created by Tory Orzeck in response to truck and cyclist accidents in Portland, Ore. The accidents were results of cyclists not being seen nor heard as the trucks turned into them. Orzeck decided to make a horn that would be loud enough to alert anyone on the road. As an added bonus, Orp also has an LED light, and both the light and horn are controlled by one big button.
