Even bike helmets are not spared from gadgetization -- from mounted cameras to mini speakers to embedded lights. Check out DORA by designer Balázs Filczer. It takes safety to a whole new level with the lights featured on every side, including a headlight, turn signals on each side, and a tail light in the back. The design incorporates handlebar controls that use Bluetooth to turn the signals on and off, so you can show drivers where you're planing to go with a turn of the head.

It seems like a very cool design for urban cyclists riding at night. As Yanko Design says, "Um… why doesn’t this already exist? It’s just… plain… genius." What do you think? Is this a design you'd look twice at if you were in the market for a new helmet?
