Sounds amazing and looking forward to the launch. Just added this to my wishlist.

Should cost quite a bit, thanks to the techno-wizardry but an interesting product that will revolutionize the motorcycling space.

Something else in this space 'LiveMap'. Android powered helmet that displays navigation info on the visor. Expected to go on sale by August at a very cheap price of $2000.

Default Skully (of smart helmet fame) shuts down

Hardware startup Skully abruptly closed it doors this week, according to TechCrunch. Reports from earlier in the month stated that the San Francisco hardware startup ousted its founder and CEO Marcus Weller and his brother Mitch, who served as chief of staff, and handed the reins to COO Martin Fitcher.

Skully’s smart motorcycle helmet, the AR-1, promised innovations such as a heads-up display, audio and video navigation, and a 180-degree rear-view camera. Helmet pre-orders raised more than $2.4 million on Indiegogo, making it the most successful wearable tech campaign of all time on the crowdfunding site.

Excitement diminished and skepticism grew as Skully missed its original May 2015 ship date, with thousands of people wondering when, if ever, they’d receive their smart helmet. Unfortunately, the answer is likely never, despite an email from the Skully just weeks ago announcing, “Over 400 AR-1 units will be in customers’ hands by the end of July and all pre-orders will be fulfilled by the end of September.”
