More tech "advancements"
« on: August 29, 2014, 04:30:28 AM »
The other day I happened upon this new helmet design.  http://www.skullysystems.com/#home  180-degree rear facing camera and uses Google Glass tech. Self contained GPS and BT.  The helmet is being crowdfunded, so the final design is yet to be announced.  But new ideas and updates are still in the works.  The price is the kicker.  Just throwing this out there.

Yeah I saw those on Facebook.  But I'll buy another bike before I spend $1500 on a flipping helmet.  That is just crazy sci-fi nonsense.

Agree with High On Octane. Too expensive & too Buck Rogers. But...six plus years from now - who knows?

Boy!  That's what I need.
A helmet that tells me I've got a phone call waiting while I'm pushing thru a tight corner.  NOT.

Yeah, I'm good. I think that would offer too many distractions. And, maybe it's just me, but one needs less distractions on a two wheeled death machine.  I don't even listen to my iPod while riding.

I don't want that much tech in what's essentially a disposable item...nor the temptation to keep using it after a moderate drop or knock that doesn't mess it up cosmetically.
