EVERYSIGHT RAPTOR AR
£649 Brand new augmented reality performance eyewear, using the tech deployed in fighter jet helmets
A spin-off from an Israeli defence company who make displays for 90% of the world’s fighter jet helmets, Everysight launched their first augmented reality eyewear in 2015. And, after a Eurobike show launch in July, they’ve released their second generation Raptor AR, which seek to provide riders with the real-time data and information while riding.
Where Raptor differ from the likes of fellow augmented cycling eyewear brands Recon Jet and 4iiii is that the display is integrated into the headset (instead of an extra unit on the arms), which then overlays data directly into the line of sight of the rider. Key real-time information includes speed, distance, heart rate, RPM and cadence, and the Raptor AR also records HD video, has navigation facilities and the ability to play music, meaning you can leave your phone at home. So are they the future? A fad? And, crucially, safe on the roads? We’ll be finding out next issue. everysight.com
