Motorcycles are a hot topic we often cover including reckless riders doing 300 km/h and the latest two-wheeled concepts for us to drool over. We've all been warned (or warned others) of the dangers associated with being a motorcyclist, so when we came across this pretty darn cool helmet "Signal" designed to save your bacon, we simply had to share it.
Quirky's Signal is an adjustable attachment that adds wireless brake lights and turn signal functions to any full-face or open-face helmet. It fits securely without any sticky adhesives or ugly hardware and easily syncs-up with your motorcycle's lights via battery-powered RFID signals. Very cool indeed. The indicators are made of a fiber-optic fabric called Lumigram, able to produce bright bursts of light while being totally flexible and lightweight.
This Quirky concept (pun-intended) is designed to vastly increase visibility and marks the company's first entry into motorcycle safety. Although this high-tech brain bucket is still in development, these initial photos released by the clever minds at Quirky could literally change the meaning of the word headlight.
