The intelligent cycling helmet that guides you on your journey
22 June 2016
Classon is a helmet designed by Brooklyness that alerts you when cars are in your blind spot and activates signals and lights based on body movements.
The Brooklyness Classon helmet is simple and intuitive and lets you communicate and connect to the world around you without even thinking about it. When cars approach, the wearer is notified by a blinking light on the visor. The company has developed a patented, non-disruptive, lighted visor that communicates with the rider, keeping them informed without taking their eyes off the road. Cameras at the front and back scan the environment to help make riders extra area of activates around them.
When signalling left or right with your arms, the rider activates motion lights, gesture sensors turn on the lights on either the left or right side of the helmet. Brake lights are activated when the helmet detects you slowing down. An integrated accelerometer knows when you are coming to a stop and can inform those around you.
Using the Classon App on your phone, riders can get step-by-step navigation guidance in the simplest way. The proprietary interface is simple and doesn’t require the wearer to take their eyes off the road. A series of directional lights under the visor tell the wearer what direction to travel in.
The helmet comes in five different colours, those such as orange, blue and yellow can help make wearers more viable.
