LumaHelm Provides Motion Augmented Night Visibility
Wouter Walmink, a researcher at RMIT University, wants to add more functionality to helmets aside from their primary use in protection from falls.
His helmet invention, the LumaHelm, is completely covered by LEDs that can be controlled by motion using a sensor in the top of the helmet.
While still a protype, Walmink wants to open up discussion around the applications of the helmet's lighting and is encouraging ideas about possible uses. So far, the helmet has been programmed to display the wearer's heart rate as well as work as a signal based on slight movements.
