Looks like new, “Smart Helmets” with augmented reality (AR), 360° roadviews, turn by turn directions, app based audio, etc., are (finally) just around the corner!

When I was first starting out on a bike, all of this would have seemed awesome. But the longer I ride, the less I want of any of that stuff. Ear plugs that plug into my Sena are about as fancy as I want. Augmented reality I believe will be too distracting or will dull peoples already blunted perception.

Not to mention, these things are going to cost a fortune.
1st Gear - Stump Puller
2nd Gear - Lets try this again
3rd Gear - I don't really have to shift ever again
4th Gear - Woah, this is fast
5th Gear - You're gonna get a ticket
6th Gear - They'll never catch me!
