Citi Bike Helmet Navigates to the Nearest Station with FLORA #WearableWednesday

jm-imbrescia-citi-bike-helmet-back

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.

Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. 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?
