BikeHUD Adventure to include transparent display and front/rear HD cameras

• http://www.gizmag.com

We weren't impressed with the chunky "monocle" unit that sits inside your helmet, and we didn't like the tangle of wires between the HUD and its on-bike componentry. But BikeHUD was always a product in development, and now the company is moving to fix both those problems with BikeHUD Adventure, a thin, transparent display that can run wirelessly off a smartphone, or hook into a fuller in-bike installation to give you extra functionality like live rear view camera and front/rear video recording.

BikeHUD is looking to take a significant step forward with the addition of a thin, transparent display to replace its large black "monocle." BikeHUD Adventure, like its predecessor, will fit inside pretty much any helmet thanks to custom designed mount kits that will ship with the unit.

Instead of a shrouded LED screen, the Adventure will use a much sharper, high definition TFT display, "illuminated by LED driven fiber optic technology." The image will be reflected into the rider's vision using beam splitting glass, making the Adventure model look a lot more like what you'd imagine out of a motorcycle HUD than the previous "Classic" model.
