    Cool ! Oakley has a very simmilar system in some of there goggles. It’s really expensive, but this technology will be totally normal and affordable here in a few years. Looking forward to it!!

    Technology is fantastic! For most of us, the purpose of riding a motorcycle is to get away from it all. This helmet is now Allowing you to bring all the same distractions as if you were driving a car. Always having someone barking in your ear, the phone calls, the weather updates, the radio stations,the rearview camera etc. Hopefully, These options can be turned off and activated when the rider needs or wants them!

    I image this kind of tech will lead to an online eye tracking function that your insurance company will use to prove you were either tired,drunk or stoned to avoid paying out.It will be a great boon for rider safety to be able to read the twitter feed in the corner of your eye while commuting to Seattle in a morning fog.The only thing I want in my field of view is an optically clear and clean visor,or goggles.

    It would be a good thing to have if your day job involves flying a MiG jet in a combat zone.

    I was hoping to see HUD data like speed, fuel level, oil pressure, etc.

    Does it come in a beanie?

    I wonder if it will stream “Housewives of Beverly Hills” to the HUD.

    The rear facing camera is kinda cool, but also kinda distracting…you can keep the rest of the crap. I ride to get away from it all, not bring it with me.

    Dear Luddites, stop byatchin’ nobody is making you buy it.

    I’m sure everyone complaining about technological progress is riding a rigid frame, with solid rubber tires, on a spoked rim, with a 6 volt electrical system, and only two light bulbs on the bike?

    Keith Grey,don’t confuse”progress”with elaborate excess and solutions to problems that don’t exist.If you need a guiding GPS arrow in front of your nose telling you where to go on a motorcycle,maybe you should stay home.

    Dude I ride to get away from all that technology BS phone calls cameras annoying voices god knows I have enuff voices in my head like the guys just spelled enough

    Swap out the Pandora & Phone for a speedometer & odometer and I wouldn’t mind swapping it with the bucket I use when just scooting around town.

    This sort of tech is neat, but I cringe at the distracted riding that will propagate with it. I’ve already seen too many people dicking with their “smart” phones whilst riding.

    Quit bitching about not being able to get away from the distractions. Not everyone who rides does so to get away. A lot of people nowadays use their motorcycles for everyday riders and it is their main source of transportation. Although I agree that these options can be distracting, not everyone is a fair weather rider. If you want to get away and ignor the distractions, take a vacation. I see this as a step forward with technology. It may not be perfect yet, but give it some time. The speedometer and vital statistics of the rider and motorcycle would be a good direction. Not too thrilled about the phone. Most motorcyle riders bitch about the people in their cars talking on their phones and not paying attention.

    Still looks like a positive step for motorcyclists.

    The Beast.

    I like the rear view and the possibility of having a speedometer built in. No mirrors and no speedo on the bike led to an unintended high speed chase by the local Sheriff who thought I was running when I was just feeling the breeze (it was very breezy at the speeds I was riding at)! Wouldn’t have saved me from the tickets but surely would have cleared the confusion about the high speed get-away!
