While the Skully AR-1 may look like a normal helmet, the self-proclaimed “world’s smartest motorcycle helmet” will likely do more than protect your head —The AR-1 boasts a rear-view camera, as well as a “heads-up display” that shows informations such as speed, directions, fuel levels and caller ID — all within the motorcyclist’s line of sight, according to Skully Systems, the San Francisco-based startup that created the wearable-tech helmet. The visor is also glare-, fog- and scratch-resistant.
What’s more, the AR-1 connects with a smartphone via Bluetooth to provide the information that is displayed its visor. For GPS services, it can connect to the Internet via smartphone, or use on-board map storage in case web connectivity is a problem.
While the helmet has access to basic phone, music and GPS features via your smartphone.
