LiveMap: Motorbike Helmet with Navigation

#Travel

If you took Google Glass and shoved it into a motorcycle helmet, what you'd get would probably be pretty close to LiveMap, a motorbike helmet equipped with a built-in navigation system with a voice controlled interface. The project is currently raising funds on Indiegogo.

Motorcyclists still need an effective navigation tool except the usual paper maps or touch-screen navigators. Using maps requires frequent stops, navigators distract the biker’s attention and are not safe to be operated on the go.

There is a device that would perfectly meet the bikers’ requirements but up to the present day only fighter pilots could enjoy its advantages. Yes, we mean helmet-mounted displays.
