Another nice crowd-funding project is hitting Kickstarter today. The project is called LightMode Open LightMode link in a new window and it's the idea from Thomas Plywaczewki in Canada.

LightMode

The idea is to make you visible at night when riding your motorcycle while remaining stylish. To accomplish that, Thomas has created a kit that when placed on your helmet will make you look like the heroes of the TRONTron Helmet Character movie.

LightMode

By placing electroluminescent (EL) material (#2) around your helmet it can be seen from any angle (360° visibility). The controller (#1) has two AA batteries and apart from turning them on or off, you can specify blinking or glowing.

LightMode

The LightMode is initially delivered in a kit form, allowing you to take any helmet you have got, and transform them into the TRON-like helmets. The batteries, if you use 2000 mAh rechargeable ones, will last 13 hours, so from dawn to dusk.

LightMode

Thomas has been smart about the placement of the controller/batteries, since they are placed on the right side, since usually the left side is used for Bluetooth/wireless communication devices.

The lights are placed on the helmet using a special, and very strong, adhesive. If you pledge money now, the cheapest DIY kit will cost you CAD$65, and for that you get 5 colors. Higher pledges give you more colors. The project is looking for CAD$2400, and deliveries are scheduled, if the financial goal is met, by September 2014.

Thomas also plans to have a complete helmet set available, all installed and ready to go.
