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.
