The LumaHelm gets a lot of attention right now, today SBS filmed the LumaHelm for the World News program, including Sebastiaan skating with it! Furthermore, Wouter gave a phone interview about the LumaHelm to a Dutch radiostation, and tonight, both Alan and Wouter will talk about the Exertion Games Lab and the LumaHelm on RRR radio.
While Twitter is still trending Joggobot, The Age, Australia’s major newspaper, has already reported on our latest project, Wouter’s interactive helmet LumaHelm which features 104 LEDs and a bunch of sensors. The comments flogged in as soon as the story went online in the top news section (the online ‘frontpage’ equivalent) talking about cycling safety and the opportunities the LumaHelm affords (Photo: Craig Sillitoe).
Gizmag wrote a really nice overview article about Joggobot, even mentioning Jogging over a Distance: http://www.gizmag.com/joggobot-autonomous-quadrocopter-running-partner/22899/
Joggobot received even more media coverage! Most of my day now consists of answering questions from the media.
