Nearly everyone knows that wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle is a better idea than not wearing one, especially in the event of an accident. But while this is often the case, some of our readers may note that fatalities can still occur even when the rider is wearing a helmet. But a tech company has come up with a solution to this problem, which could finally make the roads a safer place for motorcyclists.
Some of our Las Vegas readers may have heard about the new motorcycle helmet prototype from the Silicon Valley startup company called Skully Helmets. The wearable tech actually gives the rider a 180-degree view of their surroundings with the help of rear-mounted cameras and small projectors mounted inside the helmet. Cameras mounted in the back of the helmet work similar to those already present in some vehicles, which let the driver see what’s behind them without having to turn their head. The helmet recently won a contest this month, awarding its creators $4,000 for the innovative idea.
