Walking down the streets with some Google Glasses might make you into a bit of a Glasshole, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a right time and place to be wearing a heads-up display. The DAQRI Smart Helmet pictured above features not one, but two semi-transparent displays that sit right into your field of view and augment your environment with potentially essential data. A set of cameras provide 360 coverage, allowing you to take photos, videos, and even make detailed 3D maps. It also means you could walk right onto a complex work zone, and know exactly where to go. You could have step-by-step, illustrated instructions displayed to you as you repair a crucial piece of machinery. With the right software, the DAQRI Smrt Helmet could revolutionize today’s construction industry and dramatically increase its productivity. But it’s not on the market yet, and there’s no word how much it’ll cost once it is.
