LightMode for Motorcycle Helmets: Glow on the Shell

 |  |  |  |  |  |  August 17, 2014


The disco ball motorcycle helmet we spotted a couple of years ago will make you stand out in more ways than one, but you’re screwed if you’re riding in a dark area. Thomas Plywaczewski recently took to Kickstarter to present LightMode, an electroluminescent kit that can make your helmet more visible at night.

LightMode has two do-it-yourself kits. One has both electroluminescent tape and wire while the other only has  electroluminescent wire. Both kits will also come with adhesive, mounting aids and a small controller that runs on two AA batteries. The controller lets you toggle the tape or wire between off, on and blink modes. Thomas will also make instructional videos to help you attach LightMode to your helmet.

Thomas is also selling different motorcycle helmets that will be pre-installed with LightMode.

Enter the grid and pledge at least $64 (USD) on Kickstarter to get a LightMode DIY kit as a reward. You can get a modified helmet if you pledge at least $265.
