Dora Explores the Bicycle Helmet of the Future
We’ve seen LED integration into helmets before from companies like Torch, so are we looking at the future of helmet design with Balazs Filczer’s DORA? Currently, the DORA helmet is just a design concept – though we can’t imagine it will stay that way for too long. Like the Torch helmet, DORA features front and rear LED lamps to light the way and make you stand out to motorists, but DORA takes it a step further with integrated LED turn signals. The signals would be controlled via a handlebar mounted remote that is connected to the helmet with Bluetooth wireless. Balazs envisions the helmet with a rechargeable battery mounted in the middle to keep the weight centered.

Apparently Filczer’s DORA has already won an award in the IBDC 2013 – International Bicycle Design Competition for the clothing and accessories category.
