Cool Motorcycle Product Cruises Into CES 2017

Being seen is one of the golden rules of motorcycle safety and a new product making an appearance at CES 2017, Cosmo Connected does just that.

Celebrating 50 years, CES 2017 continues to showcase the hottest tech trends and among them a smart helmet accessory that is the first wearable brake light connected to a mobile application. Coming from a French startup specializing in the development of connected objects for the physical safety of motorcyclists, Cosmo Connected literally pops on and off helmets helping riders be seen.

Here's what the device promises;

  • The device combines an innovative visual safety feature, an emergency roadside assistance service that calls emergency services with GPS coordinates and medical information in case of accident as well as sharing of road trip details.
  • Cosmo emits a red signal at eye-level to the driver of the car behind the biker as he slows down.
  • Constant or flashing red light at eye level for added visibility and safety.
  • Weighing less than 200g, and attached with magnets, Cosmo Connected is easily detachable. Cosmo clips on and off a magnetic base affixed to the helmet with 3M double-sided tape. Cosmo is designed to detach itself from the helmet in the event of an accident. Riders simply pull on Cosmo to detach it from the helmet.
  • Rescue-call to the nearest emergency service within 3 minutes with GPS coordinates and medical profile.

Promising to fit every helmet, the device can connected to smartphones as a Bluetooth device and give low-power alerts. Cosmo Connected will be available online and in retail outlets as of May 2017.
