This magnetic light attaches to the back of a bicycle helmet and functions as a brake and turn signal

French startup Cosmo Connected wants to make cyclists more noticeable on the roads with a new magnetic smart light that attaches to a helmet to function as a brake light and turn signal. Users can also subscribe to a service that sends out an automatic call to emergency services if they get involved in an accident.

The light comes with eight different LEDs (four red and four yellow), which change to signal when the cyclist turns and decelerates. The turn signals operate through a connected app, to which the biker uploads their route, and they can also be turned on manually with triggers that go on the bicycle’s handlebars. In the app, cyclists list who they want notified if they get in an accident alongside their local emergency services.

The Cosmo Bike light, presented at CES 2018, will be released this year for €60. The company currently sells a similar product designed for motorbikes.
