With the Helios Bars — the world’s first integrated headlight and blinker system for bikes — that fit on almost every bike, California-based Kenny Gibbs has plans to revolutionize all our two-wheeled friends. Besides user-responsive lighting (the light turns off when you walk away and turns on when you get near), these bars also come with smartphone connectivity to log data and statistics for rides, plus comes with built-in navigation and the ability to track the location of your bike with GPS.

Like the Spark Core guys, the Helios team also spent some time in Shenzhen recently as part of the HAXLR8R startup accelerator to work on product prototyping. It is now appealing for funds with its Kickstarter call.
