American company, Skully Helmets is beta testing the android powered Skully P1 motorcycle helmet. The Skully P1 is a full-face motorcycle helmet that is DOT and ECE safety approved. The helmet has a lightweight tri-composite fibreglass shell and laser-cut cheek pads. The idea of the Skully P1 came to CEO Marcus Weller after he was involved in a motorcycle accident in 2011.
What makes the Skully P1 truly special is what its makers call the Synapse Heads Up Display (HUD) system that projects information onto the helmet?s visor. The wearer will be able to access navigation maps and there is a 180 degree rear facing camera that gives the rider a view of what is in their blind spots. Skully Helmets say that the display is positioned outside the rider?s primary field of view similar to Google Glass so there will be no distraction to the wearer. These means that the rider can concentrate on the road ahead without having to turn their heads to read all the signs.
The Skully P1 has Bluetooth connectivity and can be paired with your smartphone. Thanks to the helmet?s voice control, you can pretend you are Tony Stark and control your music, phone, and send texts messages. The Skully P1 comes with a battery that will last 9 hours with continuous use and can be recharged via a standard micro-USB cable. The helmet should be released in 2014 but there is no talk of price yet. So if the world?s safest bike is too pricey for you, you can start saving for this. Just don?t call the helmet ?Jarvis?
