The Skully Systems have developed a Helmet which is a combination of both these systems. The Skully AR-1 Helmet was recently launched by Skully Systems on their website. This is a Motorcycle Helmet, which lets you do much more than the average helmet.

The Company calls it as ‘Worlds Smartest motorcycle Helmet’. This device works on Android and can pair with your smartphone, which can allow you to play music, take calls, navigate roads and go online just by series of voice commands. The most exciting feature of this helmet is its rear-view display. That connects to an Ultra-wide angle 180 Deg camera behind your head that projects the location of vehicles behind your bike. Now who needs mirrors anymore? This Information is then projected onto the helmet visor. The Visor is made Electrochromic that means you can adjust with a simple switch on the side to adjust brightness according to the light intensity.
