A design is only as good as its worst detail.

In my goal to instill meaning and beauty into everyday objects, I strive to evoke visceral reactions with my work. I am convinced this is only possible through a holistic approach which respects every detail.

Most safety gear for bike commuters on the market focuses on visibility, but vigilance is also a crucial aspect of cycling safety. Like motorists, bicyclists need ways to augment their awareness.

Aegis is a smart helmet for bicycle commuters that does just that. Aegis utilizes radar proximity sensors and AI to detect approaching vehicles from behind and predict their behavior. If the trajectory of the approaching vehicle is determined to be dangerous, Aegis audibly alerts the rider via integrated speakers above the ear.
