SkullyFeature?format1000w


SKULLY P1

Heads Up Display Motorcycle Helmet


DOT/ECE Certified


Focus.

SYNAPSE(TM) INTEGRATED HEADS UP DISPLAY.

Welcome to the new era of motorcycle helmets. With Synapse(TM) integrated Heads-Up Display (HUD), Skully provides you with an advanced situational awareness system, showing navigation and blind spot data, allowing you to stay focused on the most important part of your ride - the road.


Perspective.

180 DEGREE REAR VIEW CAMERA

Skully P-1 has a patented integrated rear view camera system with a 180 degree viewing angle. Similar to the way our maps are displayed in front of the rider, the rear view camera feeds video to the HUD to provide you with complete situational awareness. The Skully P-1 watches your back (and sides) so you can enjoy the ride.


Navigation.

GPS MAPPING

Life is too short to retread the same steps. With Skully Nav the world is your track. No need to plan your route or to pull over for directions. Just ride. When you are ready, Skully will show you the way back with HUD GPS maps.


Connection.

SMARTPHONE INTEGRATION

Introducing Bluetooth pairing and voice control for Skully helmets. Pair your phone to the helmet, and unlock the connectivity potential of your mobile device while riding. The Skully P-1 allows you to control the interface with your voice. You can control your music, send texts, make calls, and change your destination all hands-free. Never before has riding been so connected.


Key Features
•Lightweight, aerodynamic, tricomposite shell
•3D laser-cut foam for a perfect fit
•Fully adjustable flow-through ventilation
•Anti-fog, anti-scratch, anti-glare face shield

•Quick release chin strap and visor
•Synapse(TM) Heads Up Display system
•Visual GPS navigation
•180 degree wide angle rearview camera
•Bluetooth connectivity with voice control

DESIGNED AND ASSEMBLED BY SKULLY IN CALIFORNIA, USA

Blue tooth it to a data module on the bike that gives me important information about how its running, and we'll have a deal.
Speed/Oil temp/ RPM/ whatever. And let me select the GUI layout too....

Skully has filmed a documentary with Vice Magazine on the future of racing. Look for the Vice Magazine documentary to air on http://www.vice.com/video in early November.

What's wrong with an instrument panel?

I do like the rear view camera, especially if it's night vision capable. I sorta remember a while back another company had a panoramic display that showed some 180deg view across the entire rear view field. Now, that's cool.

The rest is just more distractions I'm not sure I want in my helmet. With a dash display, I can at least choose to to look at it.

The only problem with the current designs is that the HUD is part of the helmet. When you damage the helmet, the display goes with it.

The ideal design would be a unit that can be installed into any helmet.
