Computing Helmet synthesized information regarding the aesthetics of a helmet and the design of a safe, audio emitting helmet to allow the user to hear both music and ambient noise of the city soundscape. The goal was to allow the rider to listen to music and be safe. Therefore, instead of wearing earbuds, the helmet had built in speakers that detected when the user was at a stop light and sirens, dimming the music with both of those triggers.
I created the project using Lilypad MP3, accelerometer, microphone amplifier, speakers, data logging shield, and rotary encoder. This project was featured on Adafruit.
