Casco Helmet with Heads Up Display - HUD
HUD displays - Jet Fighters have them, cars have them, why not on a bicycle helmet? The CASCO helmet visor is the perfect platform for a Heads Up Display. At least the most important component speed, could somehow be projected onto the visor without creating clutter and obstruction to vision - perfect for time trials. Speed information could be transmitted from a cyclocomputer or GPS device. Maybe this might be too far fetched, but at the rate technology is progressing we might see this in about five years. Whoever thought we would have electronic gear shifting on road bicycles? Or a Garmin GPS for bicycles? Heck even smart touchscreen computing cell phones were but a distant thought 10 years ago.
