High-tech helmet hauls in heaps

By Mario

The Skully AR-1 lid boasts all manner of tech features and has broken all records for crowd-funding

We featured a helmet with Head-Up Display (HUD) on the site some time ago, from a Russian outfit. But American firm Skully has certainly scored success for its design, having raised over US$2.2m via crowd-funding site Indiegogo. That’s nine times their initial target.

With money in the bank, Skully can concentrate on fulfilling their order book. About 1,700 helmets have been sold to date.

The AR-1’s HUD is linked to a rear-view camera and GPS mapping, while the helmet also features in-built audio, hands-free calls, internet and streaming music.

Check it out here and see if you’d feel distracted by so much information.
