A Smart Head On Your Shoulders

When the Skully video surfaced on the internet, it had us at AutoLife giddy with joy. A futuristic world we never thought existed was opened to our eyes. What this basically is hands down the world’s smartest helmet. Skully, a truly revolutionary product, is a motorcycle helmet which has a heads-up display and a rear-facing camera. The AR-1 (AR stands for Augmented Reality) is the first helmet from the team at Skully and features the first HUD system available for a motorcycle helmet.

The main features of the AR-1 are its 180-degree, rear-facing camera, and a little screen placed in the bottom right portion of your field of view. The screen allows you to see everything behind you, no matter which direction your helmet is facing, without any blind spots.The liner used in the AR-1 was created by a company called Outlast. Originally created for NASA, the material is designed to either absorb, store, or release heat, depending on the ambient temperature. Outlast is not a sweat-wicking technology, but is meant to help control the temperature to keep you from sweating in the first place.

The new face shield uses an electrochromatic liquid crystal technology called e-Tint, originally created by a company called AlphaMicron for the military and now adapted for commercial use. It lets the rider switch the visor between tinted and un-tinted at the push of a button. The rear spoiler that contains the camera and processor is designed to break off instantly on impact, so it doesn’t affect the way your head may potentially hit the pavement.

It is still a prototype though, and the team from Skully says to look for a major announcement around the beginning of August and that we should start seeing Skully helmets available within the first part of next year.
