Amazing, but is that a safety improvement, or just more distraction?

What's worse? Looking down or away at your instrument cluster, gps, and mirrors? Or keeping your eyes on the road while accessing the same information?

Jarvis? AKA the computer system from Tony Stark's Ironman suit? Better hope Disney/Marvel studios never catches on.

On a touring motorcycle, it would be great for the passenger. They would know whats going on without asking you or trying to lean around you to see the instruments.

No indication what safety standards this will meet - it might not even meet DOT certification. (Wait, I see the IndieGoGo pages says it's DOT cert.)

The price is $499, which is less than what a quality helmet without gizmos cost...

Oh, wait, you have to pay $1099 to get the display?

Plus, you have to have some app running on your phone you're carrying... and my phone flips... so...

Yeah, that's a "no" from me, dog.

We are making k1dude feel like we are a bunch of old baby boomers that still prefer kick starting out bikes.
-if I commuted a lot in darkness, I would consider the high tech helmet. It is much harder for me to see gauges, mirrors and phones at night.

I'm no boomer, I just like the time on my bike when I'm disconnected.

That's a lot of HUD! Confused Surely enough to be distracting. Thanks but no thanks.
