HUD Motorcycle Helmet – extending the rider’s reality

Heads-up displays (HUD) are nothing new in the car world, these days. That HUDs are functional pieces of kit cannot be denied. Having the necessary vehicle information displayed right in the driver’s field of view without having to take thier eyes off the road is a safety benefit. But things are a little more difficult for motorcyclists while wearing a helmet.

Hailing from Poland, Seemore is the latest in putting forward a solution for a motorcycle helmet HUD, following in the footsteps of BMW Motorrad and the now defunct Skully, as well as the Intelligent Cranium iC-R. Studies from the University of Michigan have shown that information absorption can be reduced by up to 1.5 seconds using a HUD.


Seemore’s solution connects with the rider’s smartphone to display information in the top right corner of the helmet visor using a prism. A module containing the display unit, controller and battery – claimed to be good for 12 hours – is installed inside the helmet, and uses Bluetooth for connectivity.



Aside from the usual speed readouts, the HUD can also display navigation instructions, traffic information, points of interest such as fuel stations, and the like. The HUD also displays notifications for incoming calls and messages, but there is no provision for reply.

An interesting feature useful for those on group rides is the ability to display the location of every rider, and the distance between them. Should one rider drop beyond a certain distance, the Seemore HUD app will come on and notify the group of the location of each rider.

A rear view camera can also be supported, installed on the bike and connected via Bluetooth. Seemore has no plans to make its HUD available to the public, but dealing directly with helmet manufacturers as the module needs to be designed into the helmet for safety reasons.

As Motorcycle Helmet Laws Ease, Injuries Increase

You know how people look so cool and carefree riding down the road on a motorcycle without a helmet on? And you kind of feel jealous they're doing that while you're stuck in a minivan listening to Kidz Bop. But you know what? You're so, so, so much safer, and so is that other motorcyclist looking maybe less carefree and actually wearing a helmet.

A new study published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery demonstrates that motorcycle helmet laws do a lot to prevent people's skulls and faces from getting crushed in motorcycle accidents. That might seem like a no-brainer, but thanks to the scientific method applied to the State of Michigan's recent decision to relax its motorcycle helmet laws, researchers now have a lot of hard evidence to back up what we might otherwise assume.

In 2012, Michigan eased up on its motorcycle helmet laws. Prior to that date the state had required every motorcyclist to wear a helmet. But after the 2012 changes signed into law by Gov. Rick Snyder, some people can now let the wind ruffle their hair if they're over 21 and have adequate experience and insurance coverage. The study looked at the craniomaxillofacial (CMF) injuries seen in 29 Michigan hospitals over the course of six years — three years before the relaxed helmet laws, and three years after. A total of 4,643 motorcycle trauma patients were treated during this period.

The researchers found that under the new law, the proportion of motorcycle accident victims not wearing helmets more than doubled, from 20 percent to 44 percent. Unhelmeted patients were twice as likely to sustain CMF injuries, had higher injury severity scores, and sustained more of all types of facial injuries. Those not wearing helmets before and after the law was passed generally had higher blood alcohol levels.

Overall, the research team found that a motorcyclist's risk of CMF injuries were cut in half if they wore a helmet, and if everyone were to wear a helmet, the incidents of facial and head injuries would decrease by 30 percent.

Someone somewhere is trying to fund a pretty cool motorcycle helmet speaker.
This Ahead Bluetooth Helmet speaker seems pretty cool.   I have no idea why they went to Kickstarter.  They could have presold this speaker to helmet companies like us to raise the money.

These guys need to call me for business advice.

Cleaning Your Motorcycle Helmet Face shield

Everyone who rides motorcycles (and wears a motorcycle helmet) will sooner or later need to clean their face shield. This article is about a simple and easy (home made) way to clean yours without a lot of effort, no chemicals, and without scratching the shield either.

Just take a couple of paper towels and get them soaking wet. Then drape the wet towels across your face shield. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes and pull it off. Most of the gunk on your shield will come off with the paper towel, and the rest has been well softened and loosened up so that you can easily wipe it off.

Using a really wet paper towel and waiting is critical. This lubricates and softens up all those bug guts and exoskeletons that get plastered on your face shield. Then when you wipe them off, it does not leave scratch marks or otherwise ruins the visibility through the plastic.

This same approach will work on sunglasses; a windscreen, or any other soft plastic you may need to clean. One caution – do not leave the paper towel on there and just walk away. It will dry on there and you will have a worse mess to deal with scraping the paper pieces off too.

Graphene motorcycle helmet

They’re hard, they’re hot, and they’re heavy, but helmets have already had the graphene treatment.
Developed by Italy’s Momodesign and the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), this first-ever graphene-infused carbon fiber helmet capitalizes on the material’s thin, strong and conductive, flexible and light characteristics to create a helmet that absorbs and dissipates impact better than your average helmet. It also disperses heat more efficiently, so it’s cooler.

Motorcycle Helmet Exemptions Stall in Missouri Legislature


JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Motorcyclists in Missouri will have to keep wearing their helmets for another year.

Lawmakers on Monday removed a provision from a bill that would've allowed people older than 21 who have had their motorcycle license for more than two years to leave the helmet at home.

Riders also would've needed to meet certain insurance requirements to ride without protective headgear.

The measure was removed from a bill in committee after passing the House last month.

Supporters of the proposal say it's a matter of personal freedom to decide whether to wear a helmet. But critics argue it's a matter of safety to protect riders.

Similar measures have passed the House for several years but have met opposition in the Senate.

The money they make stays here in America and helps other Americans!

Custom Face Mask

Why buy something when you can build your own version of it? Sure, it might be more convenient to purchase a neoprene face mask that is already designed out of the box, but that wouldn't be nearly as satisfying as designing your own mask!

Designing a homemade neoprene mask is easy: All you need is (1) a degree in electrical engineering, (2) a thorough understanding of parts manufacture and sourcing, (3) an industrial designer, (4) patience, and (5) several hundred thousand dollars.
We have the coolest new machine.  Why did we buy it?  Because we are men and love toys.  

Our new machine can print just about anything you want onto your new white face mask.  It is so cool!

We can print any image or a saying.  Please make sure the image is GOOD quality.  

Just upload your saying or image on the link on the right.

Is Tennessee a helmet state?

How the hell would we know, we are in Alabama?  Actually, we do know! Yes, and Tennessee is one of many states that have passed a so-called “universal” helmet law, which says that anyone riding a motorcycle -- whether as an operator or passenger and regardless of age or riding experience -- must wear a DOT Motorcycle Helmet.

what a coincidence...we actually sell DOT Motorcycle Helmets.

Survivors of terrifying accidents share harrowing images of their broken and blood-spattered helmets to prove that the protective headgear really DOES save lives

Anyone who has ever ridden a bicycle, motorcycle, skateboard has likely been encouraged to wear a helmet. Though you may think a plastic bucket atop your skull may not do much - photos reveal just how life-saving helmets can be.

Here is a collected a series of extreme pictures, all showing helmets that have been subjected to potentially life-threatening damage. From bike helmets cracked in half to motorcycle helmets sanded flat by pavement, these photos prove that helmets really do save lives.

Despite the scary nature of these images, the important thing to note is that helmets really do work - and if the people wearing the helmets had just so happened to forget theirs that day, their stories likely would have ended very differently.
