Bike Helmet Black Box Printer Friendly Version
The core of this invention is the inclusion of a "black box" recorder in bicycle and motor bike helmets. This black box recorder would be similar to other black box recorders, would monitor and record key information, which can then be recovered and replayed after an incident. The key information that would be recorded is speed, velocity, altitude, G-Forces, impact force and the like. The information could be used variably for (a) identifying root cause of accidents for insurance and legal reasons, (b) identifying technology opportunities for improvements to helmets, (c) creating databases of user habits with the opportunity for educational-based improvements to prevent accidents, and (d) in creating data that may aid medical treatment where head injuries have occurred.

Two-Part Car Horns / Bicycle bells Printer Friendly Version
Ever happened to you that you honked your car horn or rang your bicycle bell just to signal to someone else "hi, am here" but they misunderstood it as an aggressive gesture?
Why not allow all bells and horns in traffic to make two different sounds - one for "hi / hello / look here" and one for "danger / jump aside / buzz off"? The "danger" signal should be the one that comes naturally, e.g. when you press the car horn really hard. The lightweight friendly signal could sound when you push the horn only lightly (technology already exists in electronic drums!) or when you pull the bell trigger in the opposite direction.
Reward: Set of free bicycle bells
