Woodbridge, VA – June 23, 2015. Announcing the launch of iC- R Helmet, a motorcycle helmet with two transparent LCD heads up display screens that act as a live stream rear view mirror and as a panel for other dashboard functionalities like GPS, music, phone calls, or speedometer. The helmet includes two cameras to comprise a 210° rear field of view, ensuring cyclists will not have to physically turn their heads to change lanes. The helmet notifies users with warning LED lights if a hazard from behind – like another vehicle – is approaching too closely or too quickly. iC-R includes a solar panel on top of helmet to keep the helmet powered and operational at all times.
The helmet’s software center is mounted inside of the helmet and offers voice activation capabilities – meaning users can can ask for directions, play music, or make calls using voice commands. For users riding in groups, iC-R boasts Bluetooth Smart LE capabilities, allowing riders to see and talk with each other through the helmets.
“A lot of motorcyclists have had to develop unsafe habits out of necessity – like twisting their necks and bodies to see behind them. iC- R Helmet gives riders all of the information they need, and lets them keep their eyes on the road. ” Ambrose Dodson, Founder, IC- R Helmets
Maximizing Safety and Fun.
By connecting motorcyclists with the information of their surrounding environment, iC-R helmets let riders keep their eyes on the road, and their mind on the ride itself. Music, GPS, and calls are no longer distractions – they are enhancements. iC-R Helmets help bring motorcyclists – often completely isolated from another – into a safe community.
