reevu-motorcycle-helmet-hudAs you’ve probably noticed I add technology to this blog because we all use it to do almost everything. This one might be a stretch but it’s really cool.

Motorcycle helmet trailblazer Reevu has designed what it believes is the world’s first commercially available intelligent helmet with a built-in heads-up display (HUD). Although it won’t be available for another 18-24 months, with the first version of the Intelligent HUD helmet racetrack focused. Reevu has experience in rear-vision capabilities, which place the company in an excellent market position.

Although there isn’t much in the way of details, it has been reported that the HUD information will be displayed as an overlay on the helmet’s rear vision system and not the main visor. Bikers will still need to flick their eyes up to read it but a whole lot better than moving the whole had down to read the speedometer on some motorcycles.

The HUD will connect to the motorcycle’s diagnostics system and the images will display information such as RPM, fuel consumption data, indicator signals and other items.

It’s really something for bikers to look forward to in the not too distant future. As you can see from the graphic it looks like a really neat sci-fi design.

Reevu is looking at a price tag of “US $1076 (UK£700 Sterling)” for the intelligent helmet.
