Cyclists using the road are expected to conduct themselves as vehicles and a product like the DORA Helmet would be especially beneficial for clarifying the communication between these low-tech exposed commuters and adjacent motorists. Balázs Filczer's project is a hi-tech piece of protective equipment that's been designed to inform drivers about the wearer's intended movements.

The cutting-edge concept headgear would connect via bluetooth to a compact system installed on the bicycle's handlebars. The user would simply press a button and indicators in the DORA Helmet would illuminate appropriately. Large arrow-shaped right and left turning signals are very visible, particularly from behind and beside the cyclist. The rechargeable equipment also integrates a bright forward-facing light and a red rear one for added safety at night.
