How to improve your visibility at night while biking? With style!

This DIY “Tron” inspired cycling helmet project by Adafruit was created in collaboration with Tyler Cooper & Justin Cooper. It offers you to create your own smart bike helmet featuring LED strip, a FLORA GPS to help you to navigate to a predetermined location, and… bonus for New Yorkers, the project is programmed to find the way to the nearest Citi Bike station!
