{SummaryTitle}

The MindRider by Arlene Ducao, a researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is a helmet that effectively displays the stress levels of the person wearing it. Created with bikers in mind, it is equipped with EEG sensors and LED lights that help to inform fellow cyclists and drivers what is going on in their head while riding.

When MindRider by Arlene Ducao glows green, for instance, the cyclist has low stress levels. If, however, the helmet is flashing red lights, the wearer is in a state of panic. Using a NeuroSky MindSet, it can pick up 10 different brain waves that show fear, anxiety, concentration and more. This handsfree device could make riding much safer.
