Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To perform the self-emission of light and ensure the recognition of a body by providing a surface light emitting body on the side surface of the body, and supplying power to the surface light emitting body from a power source to emit a light. SOLUTION: A surface light emitting body 6 provided on the side surface of a body receives the supply of a power from a power source 8 built in a generating lamp 7 corresponding to a headlamp of bicycle and makes a display part 9 emit a light with a fixed brightness. Namely, when the circumference dark begins to darken, an optical sensor circuit 10 is operated, and the generation of a generator 15 charges a battery 12 through a charging circuit 11. On the other hand, the power of this battery 12 is supplied to the surface light emitting body 6 through an amplifying circuit 13 and an inverter circuit 14 by the operation of the optical sensor circuit 10 to make the display part 9 of the surface light emitting body 6 emit a light. Thus, a body can be confirmed from the circumference under any state of running and stopping, and the visual confirmability can be remarkably enhanced.
