There are a number of devices and equipment one can use to make bike riding and skate boarding safer. But rarely do those safety options add a such a strong dose of fun into the equation like the LumaHelm.
Created by the Exertion Games Lab team at RMIT University in Australia, the helmet is an interactive device designed to allow the wearer to communicate with the public via light signals. Fitted with104 LEDs controlled by an Arduino Uno microcontroller, the most direct application of the LumaHelm would allow the wearer to use the helmet as a way to deliver turn signals while riding a bike.
The designers also envision the helmet being used as a compliment to musical performances. You can see the LumaHelm in action in the videos below.
