Reevu’s MSX1, Cheap HUD Goodness

By David Ponce

Holy crap! Now this is useful as hell. If you’re the motorcycling type, know that a UK company called Reevu has made an ingeniously designed helmet that actually increases your level of safety… well, aside from the usual preventing your head from plopping on impact, and such. The MSX1, manufactured in Italy, is a helmet with an integrated heads-up display that lets you see what’s going on behind your head. And the best part is that it’s very low cost, at only about $400. How does it do this? Well, it uses a system of unbreakable mirrors constructed out of ABS, rather than a more expensive camera and projector setup.

Ten years in the making, the helmet has been designed to ensure it meets all international safety standards, and is of a similar size and weight to conventional helmets. It should be available early 2006.

    Reevu MSX1 – HUD Bike Helmet

    What an amazing piece of technology – this should be mandated by law for motorcyclists. Better than just a simple helmet, this is a step in the right direction, integrating the behind view all in the HUD of the helmet. The company that makes this,…

    Very cool indeed, but my question is this:
    If I bought this helmet could I get rid of my mirrors on my handlebars?

    Casco con retrovisor

    ¿Pagarías 400 dólares más por un casco que te ofrezca la posibilidad de ver lo que está sucediendo detrás de ti?. Sin duda es una cantidad más económica que si se usará un sistema de cámaras y proyector. En este caso el sistema usa la combin…

  6. […] If it ain’t good enough to have just a rear view mirror in your motorcycle helmet, well now you can have speakers too. Software developer Nippon MMI Technology Inc. has designed a bone conduction speaker that is now safe enough to place in your helmet. Previous in helmet speakers had never met safety standards due to their coil and magnet design. Nippon’s speaker system uses piezoelectric ceramic which is apparently soft enough to not cause damage to your head in case of impact. […]

    “Honest Officer, I really do have mirrors!” Seriously, this is cool stuff. I’d like to try it. I wonder how it performs in low level light.

    1 quarterback before suffering a knee injury, is available in reserve. Coach Karl Dorrell has not entirely blamed injuries for his team’s troubles, but said, “They have been a part of it… We need continuity. I think every offense and defense would love to have continuity from Game 1 through Game 11. As coaches, we would love that, but it is hard in this sport to have 11 players from start to finish on your team on either side of the ball.” Oregon starts the game ranked fifth in rushing offense, fifth in total offense and eighth in scoring offense. That, though, was with Dixon at quarterback. Brady Leaf, who suffered a sprained left ankle against…
