Get Lost On Your Terms With Hudway Sight AR Helmet

hudway sight ar

There are times I love getting lost on a motorcycle. In fact, most times I ride, I’d rather get lost than have a predetermined destination. It’s what motorcycling is all about. There are, however, times where getting lost isn’t that great or when you really need to know where the hell you’re going. Up until now, though, GPS directions have only been routed through headsets and earbuds. Hudway Sight, however, aims to change that with its head-up AR display.

Built so that it can be added to virtually any helmet, the Hudway Sight AR unit gives riders the ability to wirelessly connect to their phone and display a host of apps and data in a bid to help riders on their journey. The AR unit clips into the helmet’s structure and gives the rider an unobstructed forward view with superimposed maps, apps, and more on a clear glass single eye screen. No more looking down at handlebar-mounted phones here, meaning less of a chance of an accident or collision.

What the Hudway Sight AR is capable of doing is wirelessly connect to your phone through Bluetooth, provide the rider with a host of apps; including navigation, music, voice call functionality, and vehicle data. It will also last for a hefty amount of riding time thanks to a battery life of up to five hours. The full-color display will also correct for brightness, depending on ambient lighting; i.e. day to night shifts.

Two absolutely neat optional features are the Hudway Sight AR’s rearview camera mode and night vision. For motorcycle riders, the rearview camera mode is a brilliant add-on. There have been far too many riders killed because they couldn’t see what was going on behind them. And as for the night vision, there has definitely been a handful of times I’ve wished I could see better in the dark coming home late evening. 

The best part of the Hudway Sight AR system is that it weighs practically nothing (only 54 grams) and thus won’t upset your helmet’s weight balance from neutral to one side or the other. Pricing hasn’t been released yet as the Hudway Sight AR system is still very much in its infancy, but based on the tech specs and promises by the company, this is set to make riding a heck of a lot safer in the very near future.
