Until now, “smart” helmets are integral electronic devices manufactured in the factory. However, using the Hudway Sight system, you can even smarten a conventional helmet.
Hudway Sight consists of a power supply, a mounting bracket with a projector that attaches to the helmet (bicyclists, motorcyclists and racing drivers) and the control unit.
The control unit is synchronized via Bluetooth with the user's smartphone and transmits data from it to the projector. Using waveguide optical technology, the device projects information onto a tempered glass screen located at the right eye of the pilot.
Since the screen is transparent, the user can see both the road and the information displayed at the same time – speed, distance traveled, road navigation with index arrows and even notifications of text messages. If you use an additional Bluetooth headset, users will also be able to manage music applications using voice commands. The battery lasts for 5 hours.
Kickstarter Hudway Sight can be purchased for $ 499. In retail, the price could rise to 849 dollars.js.src = “&version=v2.8”; 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
