If you were wondering when Google would get around to reinventing the motorcycle helmet- well, you’re too late.
Thanks to an enterprising man named Marcus Weller the idea of a two-wheeled version of Google Glass may soon be a reality. In fact, if you hurry you can sign on as a beta tester!
Inspired by a dream Weller envisioned a helmet that could have spared him from a crash in Barcelona, Spain. In the dream the helmet had an on-board GPS which guided him through the twisting streets of the Spanish city. Unlike most of us, he acted on the dream and filed a provisional patent.
The Skully P-1 is a full-face helmet with Android-powered voice control, heads-up display, turn-by-turn directions, rear view camera and Bluetooth connectivity. The helmets are designed and assembled in Redwood City, California and plans call for retail units to ship by Summer 2014.
