Yes, Amazon’s popular Alexa device can be found in homes and cars, but did you know that now Alexa can also be found in bicycle helmets?
Earlier this year, the Safe-Tec company introduced its new TyrPlus smart bicycle helmet during the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.
The TyrPlus has integrated Alexa functionality, Bluetooth, front and rear lights, brake lights and turn signals. There are control buttons and the microphone on the chin strap, along with a removable turn signal controller for the handlebars.
You can make and receive calls on your smartphone, listen to music and receive voice navigation – all while keeping your hands on the handlebars.
By pairing the helmut with your smartphone, you can listen to your favorite playlists or podcasts without needing anything additional in your ears.
There is a remote control for the turn signal indicators on the helmet, but you can also just say “Alexa, turn left” and “Alexa, turn right.” Users can even access navigation on their device while they’re riding and receive turn-by-turn directions on the move.
The built-in lithium battery lasts 12 hours with continuous use and recharges using a micro-USB. The TyrPlus comes in three sizes and retails for $199. For more information, click here.
