The smartest motorcycle helmet ever designed


SAN FRANCISCO: For Marcus Weller the idea started off with an accident. He was riding a motorcycle in Barcelona when he took his eyes off the road to look at a road sign and smashed into the back of a car. A couple of years later he dreamt about that accident, but in the dream Weller didn’t crash.FireShot Capture 120 - The smartest motorcycle helmet ever d_ - http___www.samaa.tv_technology_201“It is leveraging or capitalizing on the way our brains and our visual systems naturally work to put that information back into the field of view, back in infinite focus to wherever I look it is in focus and reducing the reaction time, reducing the likelihood of a life threatening accident,” Weller said.
The helmet syncs to a phone via Bluetooth enabling hands-free calling, GPS navigation, and music streaming – all while keeping your eyes on the road. After years of R&D, the first helmets are scheduled to start shipping out to buyers just in time for Christmas. – Reuters
