That's cool.

I went to an automotive repair trade show this year and they have a new system out for techs that puts a hard drive on their hip and a flip down screen in fron tof their eye. Then they can scroll through shop manuals right there as they work. It's amazing what they are coming up with these days.

I like that helmet concept. I heard that they won't pass the ANSI helmet tests though. Something about the cavity that's required for the prisms. Don't know, sure would be nice to have though.

Im sure you could wire up a small camera and do the same thing?

Id be afraid of crashing and having all that glass shatter and get in my eyes!

It uses shatterproof polycarbonates. They've been making bicycle helmets for a while now, people really seem to like them.

i can see it now......................

Johnny Monsoon riding down Alki in the summertime. As he starts to go he looks in his rear-view-mirror-helmet noticing the super hot blond in her drop top bmw 325. She starts making kissing motions with her mouth and then starts sucking on her finger and...........

I emailed to see when they would be avail int he US and this is the reply I got:

It will be 2005 when the helmets come to the USA due
to the huge demand
created here in Europe, i can tell you that there is
to be an online
solution very soon for territories which will
experience delay in
distribution. I can put you on a mailing list for
this. Also keep
checking our websites for updates in the New Year
