Another Heads-Up Helmet Design
 
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.

Anyone on the order list?

Been burned too many times. I'll wait.

Looks like the old systems Apache pilots used.

^^ this. Exactly what I thought when I read the title, "another rip-off". Seen about a dozen over the last 6 or 8 yrs. No thanks.

Yup, me too. That's why I was hoping some other sucker, uh...... I mean...... person of high intelligence, would get one to review for the rest of us. >:)

The rear camera is too gimmicky for me, but the possible combined GPS and communication module piqued my interest.

Yep, like I said, I'll wait for a shipped - and reviewed product.

As it's only got a 6 month warranty which can be extended by payment - it's an offer I think I can confidently refuse - more chinese tat.

Remember that crowd funding isn't a pre-order; it's a donation with no assurance of a product. After twice (shame on me) I now wait and pay the extra cash for a real product on a dealer's shelf.

I crowd-funded a bicycle seat-post once. I got the product a year-and-a-half after I paid for it. I really like the product and it does exactly what I wanted it to do...but I think I saved $10 by ordering early and taking the risk. I don't think I'll do that again. The link is below.
