BrakeFree. The Smartest Brake Light For Motorcyclists?

Is it a smarter way to be seen when you ride your motorcycle? Probably. Brake Free is the first autonomous LED’s brake light. detecting regular braking, engine braking, emergency braking. The LED’s glow brighter only when it detects you are slowing down. It mounts on the back of the helmet you already own and its sensors works automatically to let others know whenever you slow down or braking, No need for a wired installation or connected apps. Brake Free utilizes accelerometer and gyroscope sensors to autonomously detect when you’re slowing down no matter how. The owners launched an IndieGoGo Brake Free Campaign. Watch how it works and tell me what you think.

    Interesting idea and I’m sure it will make you much more visible to those behind you.

    I’d be interested in what it adds weight wise to a helmet, ’cause my Bell is almost too heavy right now.

    I like it. Good Idea.

    Why not mount your licence plate there as well? Ahem, as in ‘HEAD MOUNTED’, would surely go some way to eliminate the laborious back-and-forth (pun intended) debate on side mounted plates…;-)

    Isn’t that pretty — I think I’ll pass. Better hurry and get one because I don’t think they will be around long.

    I really like the idea and the technology, not so thrilled with the final product. I’d rather see something more of a sleek and simple form, like say a smartphone sized screen that just lights up and flashes. Then make a attachable strap so if I choose I could fix it to my sissy bar, luggage, girlfriend, or whatever else I might think of.

    with today`s superbright LED taillights, i think everyone who is overlooking the LED brake light on the bike, will also not see the additional lights on the helmet…

    because he`s an idiot who`s writing an SMS on his smartphone or doing anything else in his car.

    Not for me, I´m not Carlsson from the roof…..

    If those lights would be widely accepted by riders, next is that head to toe airbag clothes and such stuff will be made obligate to riders, what is something that would make me stop riding

    I don’t know about this. My fear is that it would cause people to look at it, thinking “what the hell is that” “isn’t that cool” meanwhile losing concentration on their driving. An attention-grabbing novelty, but not really a good idea, in my opinion.

    Whatever works to help being seen by is a good thing. I say “why not” and “what’s the downside.” I wish these guys good luck in making it into production.

    Yes, I would also like to see a version that can be attached to a custom motorcyle, scooter..or even a third brake light version for a car… the idea of no wires, not switch, no invasive brake line installation. Lot of possibilities for this with different styling.
