Mmmm new "Augmented Reality" helmet

Well for the guys that have to have everything, or just want to channel their inner Buck Rogers, Skully have just brought this sucker out. I think a HUD be more trouble than its worth off road though, its hard enough in some light reading the track ahead without a speedo in your face. Cool tech though!

I am interested.
Whether or not I'd ever buy one is a different matter but it'd be worth a peak.

No place to fit a peak.
What you want, is a 'peek'.....

This has been in development for a coupla years, I remember seeing it somewhere on ADV before.
I'd hang off giving them Pre-order cash until I see a full independent review.

Nope. I would find it too distracting. Maybe I'm easily distracted, or maybe it would be one of those things that over time you get used to it being there. I could see it opening up a major bag of worms if you came off, giving your insurance company another reason not to pay. Kinda like if your gps is positioned incorrectly in your car, it's seen as dangerous, especially if traveling at speed. Just my 2 cents.

Thumb And there's more...

OldDog's gonna wait, and hold out till they release the "off road" version of the "Scully"... called the "Headbutt"...

The head up display features "offroad" applicable settings that augment the reality of the true dirt riding experience...

Warnings like; "FCUK !!!"... "Attention...! LARGE immovable object (rock/tree/hole) in vehicular tradjectory path" and the ever popular "END GAME... you just ran out of talent" are all features of the new gravel compliant version of the "Headbutt".

Comes with an iPhone app for SPOT trackers; featuring an intercom function to the GoPro helmet cam... now you too can do Dick Johnson/Larry Perkin's style live commentary for the fans at home in real time...

Ever driven a car with HUD? It's not as distracting as you'd think because you look 'through' it - unlike a GPS which is a solid object. The projected image is transparent. Google glasses are much more intrusive.
Incidentally, how many know where it's legal to mount a GPS (or similar) on a car's windscreen?
Here in Vic at least, the ONLY place you can attach anything to the screen is in the area that's NOT swept by the wipers - and ADRs demand that Aus-spec cars have one of the highest percentage of swept area - a minimum of 88% of the total frontal glass, from memory.

I'd have one as it would work well for my main bike interest.
