Helmet has a fighter jet style heads up display inside

All sorts of cool projects turn up over on Indiegogo. Some of the projects aren't anything that fans of cars and motorcycles would be interested in, but on occasion, something interesting for enthusiasts does turn up. The interesting thing that's turned up recently is a high-tech motorcycle helmet designed to give riders a heads up display similar to something jet pilots would see.

The helmet is called the LiveMap motorcycle helmet and it has a built-in GPS navigation system with a voice control interface. The helmet projects a map and driving directions onto the windscreen surface where riders can get directions they need while keeping their eyes on the road. Power for the system comes from a pair of 3000 mAh batteries and the device has two earphones.

The helmet also features a light sensor that automatically adjusts image brightness to ensure that the rider can see what's in front of them at all times. It also features a digital compass the tracks head movement and changes the picture the rider sees depending on the orientation of their head and bike. The manufacturer expects production versions of the helmet to cost about $2000 putting them out of reach of most riders.
