Ubiquitous Computing Helmet #WearableWednesday

Thanks so much to Nicole for sending in her great helmet project! View more information on her blog here.

The ubiquitous computing helmet explores how design, both aesthetically and technically, can transform a bicycle helmet into a desired and fashionable aspect of riding a bicycle. With an increase in urbanization and the number of cyclist in urban environments, this design aims to reach into the future to investigate the ubiquitous computing capabilities of a helmet that will provide a safe and desired experience between the user and the helmet. This project synthesized information regarding the aesthetics of a helmet and the design of a safe, audio emitting helmet to allow the user to hear both music and ambient noise of the city soundscape.

Created with Lilypad MP3, accelerometer, microphone amplifier, speakers, data logging shield, and rotary encoder.

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!


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.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

CircuitPython in 2018 – Python on Microcontrollers is here!

Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
