Argon Transform adds dual cameras, comms and a HUD to any motorcycle helmet

• by Loz Blain

There are many smart helmet manufacturers out there trying to build fully integrated smart lids, but at the end of the day, making smart helmet tech is a very different job from making a great, safe and comfy motorcycle helmet. So young startup Whyre's approach of making a kit that'll fit on most any helmet makes sense. It might not look as neat and integrated, but it allows the company to get to market without worrying about helmet safety standards testing and all the other bits and pieces that seem to be slowing down the majority of smart helmet startups.

The Argon Transform sticks two main IP65-rated modules to your lid with high-strength, removable 3M adhesives: a chunky rear unit that houses a big ol' eight-hour battery and rear-facing camera, and a bit that attaches to your chin piece to provide a heads-up display you can glance at without having to dip your head.
