The AR-1 Skully Helmet

By -

We all know how dangerous riding a motorcycle can be.  A motorcyclist needs to be aware of his surroundings at all times and taking your eyes off the road for even a split second could result in a fatal accident.  Founder and CEO Dr. Marcus Weller of Skully, an advanced helmet, might have the answer you’ve been looking for.

The skully AR-1 is a safety focused motorcycle helmet with a rear camera, heads up display (HUD), and GPS.  After being in many motorcycle accidents himself and not being able to find a helmet with everything he wanted, Weller decided to design one with all the essentials.  The AR-1’s HUD gives the rider an easy view without intruding on your line of sight.  The rearview camera offers a wide view so that you don’t have to turn your head to see what’s behind you.  With the GPS antenna you won’t be getting lost on the road.  Using Bluetooth and voice recognition software you can easily make hands-free calls and also stream your favorite music.  The helmet is ready to be launched as the world’s smartest helmet.

Its sleek design is lightweight and aerodynamic.  It features a fog, scratch, and glare resistant visor.  It also has a laser cut foam interior to fit snugly and the lining reduces perspiration by 70%.  It also had and electrochromic e-tint feature, which lets riders combat glaring sunlight by electronically making the visor darker at the press of a button.  How cool is that!!! Batman would love to place his order.

All that technology doesn’t come cheap though.  If you’re interested in buying the AR-1 you’ll be spending a hefty $1400, but there’s no price for safety.
