A freak­ishly smart mo­tor­cy­cle hel­met en­gi­neered to keep your eye on the road.

When you’re riding a mo­tor­cy­cle, fo­cus is ev­ery­thing. Even a quick glance at a mir­ror is enough to send you skid­ding. The Skully AR-1 is en­gi­neered to keep your pupils on the road. It’s the first hel­met with a built-in heads-up dis­play: Pro­jected onto the right-hand corner of the vi­sor is live footage from a rear-mounted cam­era that shows the road be­hind as well as your blind spots. Also shown: speed, turn-by-turn direc­tions, and info gath­ered from a paired phone (calls, mu­sic). And no, the bar­rage of data won’t dis­tract you: Dis­played trans­par­ently, it all ap­pears within your nat­u­ral sight line. What’s more, the lid re­sponds to voice com­mands, and its vi­sor changes tint with the press of a but­ton. The fu­ture never looked so safe. $1,499; skullysys­tems.com

The Skully AR-1 mo­tor­cy­cle hel­met lets you view direc­tions, phone calls, and the road be­hind you with­out ever tak­ing your eyes off the as­phalt.
