SMART Cycling Helmet from LifeBEAM

LifeBeam SMART

While swimmers wear goggles, cyclists wear helmets, and LifeBEAM saw helmets as a natural place to put sensors. The SMART helmet optically reads the wearer's pulse from their forehead and transmits that data, as well as movement data from a 3-axis accelerometer, to a smartphone, computer, or cycling computer. Tel Aviv, Israel-based LifeBEAM raised $64,000 on Indiegogo and is taking pre-orders at $200. The company also manufactures a headband with a heart rate sensor built in.
