LiveMap Strives to Advance Motorcycle Helmet Safety

Posted on

A Russian company has developed a motorcycle helmet that seeks to dramatically improve safety for riders.  Known as LiveMap, the device features a series of directional and informational feeds displayed directly on the rider’s visor.  In this manner, the rider is able to see a map of the area along with their current path, and they can issue simple voice prompts in order to sift through the information or contact authorities in the event of an emergency.  And to ensure that distraction doesn’t get the best of riders, the amount of and space occupied by information decreases as speed picks up so that focus can be on the road and not the display.  The LiveMap won’t be available until next year and will cost $2,000 for those who fail to pre-order by June.
