Lumos Helmets launches updated LED helmet
Lumos Helmets will be the first Smart Bike Helmet sold in Apple Stores. The helmet update will make it so users can download an app to their Apple Watch and use hand signals that correspond with smart gesture recognition algorithms that then communicate to the helmet.
The Lumos phone app will also integrate with Strava and Apple Health. The helmet will be available in 300 Apple Stores across the United States and Europe.
“I am tremendously excited about this new feature and how it will further enhance cycling safety,” said Eu-wen Ding, Lumos Helmet’s CEO.“ As a design-centered company, we’re thrilled to be able to launch this with Apple. Having got our start as an idea on Kickstarter, this is a huge moment for us!”
