On Monday, I crashed my Monster at about 50mph. I suffered road rash on my hip and lots of bruising- and Pandora has flesh wounds of her own. Here’s what exactly happened, and the lowdown on the gear that saved my life.
Nuviz: Heads-Up Display for Helmets
There’s been a whole lot of hubbub all over the interwebs about the new Skully helmet with Heads-Up Display technology, it’s just gone to production and said to be retailing in the ballpark of $1,400. But, here’s an idea, what if you could outfit your favorite helmet with it’s own HUD technology?
The Nuviz Ride:HUD system does just that. Adds in-view GPS directions, speed, track stats, camera, and so many more functions straight to your helmet of choice.
The data connects with an app on your phone, giving you full control of your rides, mileage, videos, etc. And it looks just like this right in your line of sight.
The device is compact and quite slim, so adding it to the outside of your helmet won’t be like having a cell phone from the 90s strapped to your sleek and sexy helmet.
Seems like the way to go- a device that empowers the motorcyclist with information. No more looking down at your gauges to check your speed, taking your eyes off the road. No more fiddling with GPS on your phone or taping written directions to your tank. The future is here!
