Commuting to work on a bike, scooter, or e-bike can be dangerous because of fast cars and trucks that share the road, especially during rush hour. To tackle this issue, the Lumos Smart Helmet was introduced through kickstarter but the designers have upgraded the original smart helmet to the Lumos Matrix Helmet. This smart helmet has more LED lights than the original and is brighter.
This sleek, mean looking helmet has integrated LED lights, turn signals, brake lights, and much more. You can customize the Matrix lights at the back of the helmet to 5 different designs, making sure you stand out. The included wireless remote can activate turn signals on the back of the helmet so people know your next move and you don’t have to stick your arms out to signal. Through the Lumos App, an automatic brake light comes on with smart ride sensitivity.
The Matrix Helmet can be connected via Bluetooth to it’s companion app. Through the app you can get information on your commute and can share data with Apple Health or Google Fit, giving you a clear picture and analysis on your fitness. The helmet can be charged via USB and can provide up to 10 hours of run-time on one charge. The helmet also has a built-in remote holder so both of them can be charged at the same time. The helmet is durable and lightweight weighing only 580g.
You can pre-order your helmet for about $188 from lumos. You can choose from charcoal black or jet white.
