While the crustier curmudgeons out there may disagree, there are plenty of riders out there who’d be happy to own a helmet with HUD (heads-up display).
Now, a team of Russians is working on such a lid, and they’ve put together a few prototype pieces with help from various Russian innovation stimulation funds (which sounds, just a bit, like an oxymoron, but who are we to judge?).
The design they’re working on integrates a speedometer, turn-by-turn GPS navigation, clock, and more. It’ll be battery-powered, and the helmet itself will be certified to DOT, ECE22.05, FCC, and JIS T 8133 standards.
There’s just one problem: The designers need more money to get this project rolling, and that’s where you can come in.
If you think you like the sound of this kit, you can donate money to their efforts through IndieGoGo. Check it out! For $1,500, they will guarantee you one of the first helmets made. There are other, less pricey options as well.
