Google Glass in a Helmet?

Not exactly but there is a new helmet announces yesterday that so far comes closest to being Google Glass in a helmet.

The Skully P-1 helmet features a 180 degree rear facing camera with a heads up display (HUD) in the helmet that you can use to see what's behind you.  The display is built in to the visor so it appears to float about 20 feet ahead of the rider.

It's similar in concept to the Reevu helmet that have been out for a while now except the Reevu's used mirrors to give you a view behind you. The Reevu was neat but it doesn't run on Android like this helmet does. 

It's also packing built in GPS, Bluetooth, an accelerometer, gyro, compass and, of course, a rechargeable battery.

It's voice activated so you can control the functions of the helmet without the need to pull over.  it displays a map of where you're going and can use the built in GPS to provide real time directions.

And as it is an Android device, developers will be able to create apps for it when the SDK is released later this year.  How about a real time lap timer that shows you your speed, line, acceleration and braking on every turn.  That or watch porn on boring freeway stretches.   You laugh but I'm sure someone will do it.
