“The helmet features a soft forehead-based sensor that uses EEG (electroencephalography) to measure electrical activity in the rider’s brain, along with an ear-based sensor that’s used to remove noise from the EEG signal. It also has an LED located on its brim, that’s visible to the wearer as they ride. The LEDs glow green for a calm state of mind or red for a more stressed state of mind during a bike rider’s route.”

“Migaloo (white fella in the Mayi-Katuna language from north Queensland) was first sighted in 1991, aged 3-5. He is a humpback, rather than a sperm whale such as Melville’s protagonist. He is also entirely white, unlike the fictional version. Although not the only white humpback in the world, Migaloo is much more inclined to venture into waters where humans may see him, making an annual migration during the Australian winter up the east coast.”
