The Bicycle Helmet Taking Over the World

Technology is growing and so is creativity. Modern technology has resulted to migration from analogue to digital and from manual to electronic with respect to a wide range of activities and dimensions. With all these components combined; growth, creativity and migration, high tech gadgets are invented, and among them is the Lumos helmet gadget. This helmet is definitely a next generation bicycle helmet as it has incredible features, just unbelievable. 

This mind-blowing invention is a work of art, a mastering of high technology and a genius mind behind it, combined. This combination resulted in the real deal; a masterpiece of high tech-art. Some of the features designed to distinguish this masterpiece include the following;

  • Integrated lights
  • Turn signal lights
  • Automatic brake lights
  • Water resistance
  • Rechargeable battery

The automatic brake light is located at the back of the helmet and is triangle-like in shape to indicate stopping (Δ). The turn signals, on the other hand, are located on either side of the helmet such that when turning left, the light signal on the left side will start to flash to indicate a turn in that direction (<). Same applies for the right signal and turn respectively (>). The front light is mainly used for visibility and is aligned along the edge.

The brake light when flashed emits a 16 super bright LED while the turn signals at the side emit a 15 super bright LED each when flashed. The front light uses a 14 super bright LED. These lights are controlled by a small wireless remote control which has a 6-months battery life. The battery used to run this remote is a coin cell, which is replaceable. This helmet also has a 3 axis accelerometer just above the brake lights indicators and a battery under it. 

The Lumos helmet gadget is a kick-starter project with the highest success rate so far, and due to its efficiency in increasing visibility and communication between motorists while in traffic, it is taking over the world by storm.
