Citi Bike Helmet Navigates to the Nearest Station with FLORA #WearableWednesday
In New York, our new Citi Bike bikeshare program is really taking off. We were inspired to create a helmet that navigates you to the nearest Citi Bike docking station with LED strip inside. We found this nifty Carrera foldable helmet with spaces that just begged to be illuminated (without compromising the smooth outer safety surface). Check out the video on YouTube (please subscribe!) and Vimeo, and build your own Citi Bike Helmet with our step-by-step on the Adafruit Learning System. Customize the code for bikeshare in your city!
This project was created in collaboration with Tyler Cooper & Justin Cooper, with major video help from Risa Rose and JM Imbrescia.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

This is a great improvement for safety. Any recommendations on how to make it water proof (I ride in any weather condition)? Are the light strips water proof already? Is it just the FLORA + PSU + contacts that need insulation?
