What is the purpose of a helmet? Well, you would say safety of course apart from saving yourself a challan from the traffic police in India. Now, what if we said you could have a Bluetooth connected motorbike helmet which can be a life saver in case of a collision and add to your fashion statement also? Sounds exciting enough?
Well, the Indian motorbike community will be pleasantly startled with the new range of smart helmets called Quin.
Quin helmets are manufactured by Quinessential Design which is headquartered in Minnesota, USA and Hyderabad, India. Its founder Anirudha Surabhi is also known for the Kranium Paper Helmet which was used in Formula 1.
This is a start-up which launched a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter and received almost twice the funding in a mere 48-hour time-frame. Check out their Kickstarter page.
