Those who are in Europe or in tech globally know this week is IFA in Berlin. IFA is the world’s leading trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances and takes place from September 4 to 9, 2015 in Berlin this year. All this week & next I will be receiving press releases on some of the newest and innovated products that are being showcased at IFA.
This is the first of many cool press releases I have received thus far and want to focus on the LIVALL Bling Helmet as I have never seen such a cool and efficient helmet!
LIVALL will introduce the Bling Helmet, the world’s first smart cycling helmet, at the IFA Show tomorrow (9/4/2015)! The LIVALL Bling Helmet sends SOS Messages during emergencies, features 80 Built-in Smart LEDs with Turn Signals, Wind-cancelling Mic, 3-Axis Gravity Sensor, Cadence Sensor, Hi-Fi Bluetooth Speakers, Phone Holder, Remote Control, & Walkie-Talkie.
At first I wondered how they could fit all of that in one helmet and it still look sexy. Let’s face it fashionistas we may bike but we want to look fly doing it so for us a clunky helmet is not a good look (and a bad hair day). Surprisingly it has a nice design and not much bigger than the average helmet. Now, I haven’t tried it on so I can’t vouch for the weight but I can imagine the creators of the Bling Helmet at LIVALL factored that in as well. If you would like to see it in action here is a great youtube of the LIVALL Bling Helmet:
Currently the LIVALL Bling Helment is on Indiegogo and already at 788% funded, raising over $157,562 at the time of this post. It’s not too late to get the early bird special as you still have 15 days to get a discounted Bling Helmet on Indiegogo for $100 (MSRP $277) that includes the Bling Helmet, Bling Jet and an additional Nano Cadence Sensor. They will be shipping in November.
Below is the full press release from IFA in Berlin including information on the 3 Smart Bikes LIVALL will be announcing tomorrow. They will be starting an Indiegogo campaign for them in November as well.
