Extreme Tech Winner Changes Face of Motorcycles

Over the past couple of days at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show, we have seen the technology of the future.

As Gary Shapiro, the President and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association, says, “The International CES has broken every record as wireless, sensors and the internet combine and entrepreneurs present innovations which enhance the human condition and solve problems in health care, transportation, safety and connectivity.”

Now a new technology that will revolutionize the safety of motorcyclists has blown away the CES, and earned $1,000 and a spot in the semi-finals. Its name is Skully.

Skully is the smartest motorcycle helmet you will ever meet. Even without its sleek, futuristic feel, the helmet aims to impress its wearers with a heads-up display, rearview camera and GPS navigation. The helmet offers wireless communication between the motorcycle and its rider, providing riders the vehicle speed, engine speed, fuel consumption and more. Right now, this helmet feature is only available with more technologically-advanced motorcycles.

Skully AR-1 has also been demonstrated before in the EICMA, the world’s largest conference for motorcycles, in Italy. There, the Founder and CEO of Skully explained some of the features of AR-1, including 360-degree awareness.

Skully has a massive presence over social media. Two weeks ago, Skully reported over 4,000 followers on Instagram. Its Facebook page received 79,932 likes. When the CES gave Skully its cash prize, it was so that the new motorcycle gadget could continue to grow its social media presence. As Skully continues to improve, we could be seeing a new age of motorcycle wear in the near future.
