This came up on my news feed this morning. The possibility to add on to any helmet is intriguing. I'm not convinced a rear facing camera would be as steady as the promo video shows. Bulky looking. Still in pre-production. They are taking orders though.
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.
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.
