Get Lost On Your Terms With Hudway Sight AR Helmet

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.

The undisputed class leader, BMW Motorrad's large adventure touring motorcycle, gave its competition new challenges.
Why the 2025 BMW R 1300 GS Adventure is such a big deal

BMW Motorrad's R 1300 GS is the big dog of the dual-purpose adventure touring category. There are plenty of good, great, and even excellent large adventure bikes, but the BMW R 1300 GS models are the measure against which all others are measured. The changes for 2024, including a redesigned frame and improved steering for greater stability, were welcome, but the most recent update is more momentous.

We tried out Hennessey’s 850 horsepower Mustang, and we have thoughts
We go hands on with the H850 Dark Horse
The Hennessey H850 Mustang Front

The Ford Mustang Dark Horse is one of the most powerful vehicles the company produces and also one of the hardest to tune. With 500 horsepower coming courtesy of a naturally aspirated V8 and a stripped-down interior created with racing in mind, Ford’s premier muscle car comes ready to take on the track or drag strip. But for some people, that 500 horsepower isn’t enough, and the Dark Horse needs a bit more oomph. Luckily, there are a couple of options available, so you can get that without having to alter the Mustang yourself.

This is where John Hennessey, a man who made his name getting more out of already powerful cars, comes in. For a shade under $25,000, Hennessey will supercharge your Dark Horse, which bumps the vehicle’s horsepower up to a staggering 850. That’s more than a Ferrari Daytona SP3 or a Koenigsegg CCR. It’s 232 more than the legendary McLaren F1.

We tried GM’s Super Cruise handsfree driving tech – here’s what we think
Super Cruise is one of the more advanced self driving systems
GM Super Cruise active light wheel

While not fully autonomous, Level 2 self driving is becoming more common with many manufacturers having their own systems. GM is one of those manufacturers, and its “Super Cruise” system claims to be the most extensive one available in the United States at the moment.

Like other Level 2 systems, Super Cruise allows drivers to take their hands off the wheel on designated stretches of road and let the vehicle do its thing. As with other systems, Super Cruise will pop up a notification when you can activate it. When it's running, the top of your wheel will go green. If you see it flash red, then it's time to take control of the vehicle.
