World’s Smartest Motorcycle Helmet

20140808223942-Hero_helmet

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.

With Android One, Google is poised to own the entire world

Android One is a reference platform — it’s a set of rules that device makers can follow to make low-cost phones.

The first Android One devices will be produced by Indian manufacturers this fall. An example device that Google demonstrated this week featured a 4.5-inch display, support for two SIM cards at once (an important feature for many in developing markets), an SD card slot, and an FM radio. Critically, it is said to cost less than $100 to make, far less than the cost of most smartphones sold in the developed world.

Google isn’t just controlling the hardware with Android One, either — it’s also making sure the devices run the latest versions of Android.

Micromax, Karbonn Mobile and Spice Mobile will also be making Android One phones.
