    the other day I was thinking about an iron man helmet that actually looked like it but this is cool too, but it doesn't look that cool:)

    Cool idea. In 5 years it might be reasonably priced. With Google Glass (coming) this might even happen sooner.

    Neat idea but the usability had better be perfect; I'd hate for the restaurant overlay to appear while aiming for the apex of a downhill right hander..

    Thx for sharing.

    I agree I was mildly bummed to see that they didn't make it look like Iron Man. It actually looks a bit more Daft Punk than Iron Man. Interesting technology, though.

    sent with my phone...please excuse the typos

    Seems to be quite configurable...let's just hope they iron out everything so there are no "first generation bugs"....

    This helmet seems like a bad implementation... To the point that it makes Google Glass look good. I do not want a helmet that is twice as big, four times as expensive and blocks my central vision!

    They make a valid point that current nav systems are less than ideal, especially when placed far from the line of site as shown in the video. The key difference though is that a rider can choose to ignore current nav systems when circumstances warrant. My biggest concern is having this nav system interrupt at the wrong moment.
