Deep in a heavily guarded underground bunker is NixTech lab. Mad scientist Russel Lemburg is soldering away on his next creation. Yet to be named, this LED strip for helmets uses the same independently addressable RGB LEDs as the popular Nix Googles. Russell sent me a sneak preview about a week ago and I just had to spill the beans. Click to see a close up video of the strip without the helmet.
Keep in mind the LEDs are being filmed in a fully lit room, in the darkness they tend to overwhelm most digital camera sensors. The LEDs on the new helmet strip and the original Nix Googles are so bright, they actually illuminate street signs and send light in the direction the rider is looking. Russell let me know he’d send a few prototypes my way soon. I can’t wait to get my hands on one.
