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.

    “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.
