A team of British engineers some time ago initiated a company BikeHUD. To implement the required start-up 120 thousand dollars, but even just a week of action, the inventors were able to gather more than 187 thousand dollars and that amount continues to grow.
The aim of the project was to create a helmet-visor for motorcyclists. Visor BikeHUD – a device used to display more information at the time of drive required to facilitate the trip, as well as to improve safety on the road. Similar devices are being introduced in the Air Force today in many countries.
The British established a civil imager BikeHUD
The first and perhaps the most important task to be solved by BikeHUD – it is an opportunity to look behind him in the helmet, without turning his head. To do this, on the helmet mounted rear camera that takes everything that happens behind and passes to the small screen that hangs right before your eyes.
In addition, BikeHUD can display various statistical information, speed, fuel consumption, and also to report speed limit sign. In addition BikeHUD can connect to the Internet, and he will be able to report the weather forecast. The device operates on the basis of system Android.
The cost of one such helmet will be about $ 500. BikeHUD also works on the technology of GPS. In the next update, the inventors want to “teach” them visor reports on the dangers on the road, such as accidents have occurred, as well as working as a range finder and navigator. Visor can be purchased in the early months of 2015. It is worth mentioning that the bar mounting mini screen has the ability to control for individual configuration motorcyclist.
