I agree. It's amazing what kids are doing with electronics today. The MSP430 Launchpad is definitely a cool prototyping platform like the Arduino to build smart electronic gadgets. Awesome project!

Good to know that there are some other people that do this in high school.  Really great project too, I like the use of auto body filler to cover the helmet, as well as the use of cheap and avaliable materials like carboard instead of something expensive like cnc cut or 3-d printed parts.  Nice job!

Way cool gadget! I would rather meet the kid that created it than the TI rep. The creator also did an excellent job on the documentation.
