Smart helmets let bikers listen to music safely
    2016-08-17  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    A new gadget could let cyclists enjoy music without adding the danger of drowning out the noise of traffic.

    The smart helmet plays music wirelessly without the need for headphones, and the company behind the helmet thinks it could significantly reduce fatality rates around the world. The helmet means cyclists they can hear audio as well as their surroundings.

    Users of the Coros LINX helmet, which weighs 400g, can listen to podcasts and make phone calls by connecting their phone to the helmet via bluetooth. A device mounted to the handlebars can adjust the volume, pause and skip songs. It provides voice navigation from a GPS while there is also a group communication tool which lets cyclists who are wearing the helmet interact with one another as they ride.

    The sound is conveyed through a technique known as bone conduction* technology, which involves sound waves vibrating* against the bones, before reaching the cochlea* which transmits it to the brain.

    It has a 10-hour battery life and takes one and half hours to charge. Another cutting-edge feature is the implementation of an emergency alert system, which notifies an emergency contact when the helmet experiences significant impact.
