This is a smart bike helmet that features the safety elements of lighting, brake lights and turn signals to highlight a cyclist intentions to drivers at night.
The team’s latest innovation is to link hand movements from those wearing an Apple Watch to the helmet to initiate the turn signals. Cool!
Lumos started with a pair of engineers asking themselves how they could improve their own cycling experience and safety on the road. We loved commuting to work by bike, but all too often it’d feel so dangerous. So we decided to make a solution. A helmet that can make us and our intentions more visible.
We announced the idea out to the public and fellow cyclists seemed to love it. The rest is history.
