Default PLY Smart helmet

Not sure what to think about this:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...hnology-helmet

I suppose it's a logical step to build everything in since people are adding the gadgets individually anyway.

I wonder what it would be like if every road user could speak to every other road user - "Could you please speed up?", "You've left your turn signal on", "WTF are you doing now?". "No, I can't speed up, there's a tractor in front of me." "Oops, sorry about that..."

Maybe, not.

+1 but it won't be long before vehicles do this without telling you.

+1. The only sound I want to hear is that lovely V twin music...

Spot on, there are enough mobile phone / computer / social media / technology addicts already ( this has now been officially recognised as a mental illness - about 20 years too late ).

May be interested in dashcam bit, but would hate for my helmet to be out of date after a year because newer camera tech is available and integral fitted one can't be updated..
