Not surprisingly, the folks at Revolights have a better description of their product:
Revolights provide superior lighting by fully illuminating a cyclist’s path. Unlike traditional headlights, which focus light on a single location, Revolights throw a uniquely even and wide vertical swath of light, illuminating not only the ground but road signs and elevated obstacles as well. The light’s low origin also allows riders to determine the height of obstacles in the road by the length of their shadows.
Unlike traditional bike lights, which project light in only one direction, Revolights cast 360 degrees of illumination, making it much easier for others to see the rider. This improves safety tremendously, as most nighttime bike-car collisions are due to inadequate side visibility.
I guess I’m not the only one impressed with Revolights:
