New HUD Helmet Project

A Russian startup is developing an HUD helmet. It looks pretty nice from the pictures & video:







LiveMap: Motorbike helmet with navigation - YouTube

Assuming they are able to ship the product, the helmets will be in CF and will cost about $2000. They are currently trying to raise about $150k. You can read more about them and support them if you like the idea at the link below:

I don't like any unnecessary visual distractions while riding. The engine sound will tell me RPM, never mind the speed and my audible alarm for the Escort will tell me when to slow down.
Nice if you like gadgets though

I agree, target fixation could be a definite issue, but if like an HUD, information could can be filtered and subdued visually. I like the idea and a basic built in Sat Nav amongst others things would be great.

I think that this will be the normal in 3-5 years, target fixation could be an issue but think of some things that could come from this, imagine it plotting a line around a track for you and posting lap times. It could be a useful tool
