Anyone on the order list?

I've got a buddy who shoots video with a helmet-mounted GoPro, and they're very steady, so I think that can be done. I'll still wait.

I do like the idea of a rear mounted camera that would let me see directly behind me, but a helmet has to be a good, well-fitted helmet first. If it turns out to be a mediocre helmet that doesn't fit my noggin, I'd have to pass anyway no matter how nice the camera is.

Hmm.. I guess I should have looked at the ad first. LOL
I'm like you guys though. I'll wait for the product and see it evaluated even if it means paying full price.

Just keepin' up with traffic, Officer.

I can honestly say I have no desire to own or wear a heads up display. I have no problem glancing at my speedometer to see how fast I'm going or in a mirror to see what's behind me. To me it seems nothing more than a money-sucking gimmick.

Looks bulky, uses phone data (I'm out, international data plans too expensive) so not a real GPS, will HUD display work for those who need bifocals, you'd have to get creative to put this on a modular helmet, very expensive. No user manual posted, I'd always want to see that first.
I can do without, have GPS and cameras.

Steve, just look straight ahead really carefully and concentrate, you might see a root beer in the distance.
