Hopefully this is the right subforum for this.
Some time after Skully stumbled in 2016, I built myself a heads-up display as a hobby project (I figured that, if I didnít do it for myself, nobody would ever do it). Since interest seems to be reviving in this subject (Nuviz, Crosshelmet, Skully again, etc.), I thought Iíd share what I made.
A few pictures:
The eyepiece displays text from a small projector in your field-of-view, so I never have to look away from the road. Itíll display speed, or basic GPS navigation, or both. The HUD pairs via Bluetooth to a smartphone. It looks like this from the inside of the helmet:
I designed it to fit inside both of my helmets, and Iím quite certain it will fit into any adult full-face helmet, which is a good thing, since the helmets I have fit me well and are the right weight.
Itíll work during the day (with a tinted visor; with a clear visor, the display isnít quite bright enough to clearly see), and at night. Itís also waterproof.
As you can see, there is no frontal aerodynamic impact, because all of the pieces are tucked inside the helmet:
And it charges with a standard Android charging cable:
The eyepiece is made out of a ballistics-grade composite. It probably wonít stop a real bullet, but it wonít shatter, even in a serious accident.
The pieces are attached to the helmet at multiple points using the same adhesive GoPros use. For those of you who have used it, you know that itís incredibly, stubbornly strong. Iím confident that the pieces wonít detach in an accident.
Anyways, I brought this to a motorcycle show last month by chance, and a few people I met thought I ought to turn it into a kit and sell it. Iím not actually selling it, because I havenít certified it with the right regulatory bodies, and I havenít done that much safety testing with it, but Iím curious whether or not people would be interested in this, if I worked on it and made it available.
