A Motorcycle Helmet For The Digital World

At a time when screens are being integrated into everything, Skully engineers saw an opportunity to upgrade something that’s remained largely unchanged for decades: the motorcycle helmet. The P-1 is the first helmet with a digital head-up display. The one-inch screen sits at the right-hand edge of the driver’s field of view and projects a live feed from a 180-degree rear-facing camera, eliminating the blind spots that plague other helmets. The system can also broadcast turn-by-turn directions and pair with a smartphone to read back text messages, so the rider’s eyes can stay glued to the road.
