Wearing a helmet is a pre-requisite to ride a motorcycle in most countries. Whether biking is a hobby or just a means of transportation, safety is a top priority while biking. While exploring or traveling to somewhere new, you can use a good navigation system, and using a smartphone is the most popular way at the moment to get around. However, it can be extremely dangerous when you’re looking at your phone while riding.
What if you can get the navigation system on your helmet? EyeLights made a solution for riders to have a better experience without taking their eyes off the road. The company introduced EyeRide, a head-up display (HUD) for helmets to make sure you can have a safer ride on the road.
Innovative innovators’ innovation
Things are becoming smart by technological advancement. If everything can be smart, then why not your helmet? Conversely, it is essential to make sure you can have safety and know your track records at the same time. From that perspective, EyeLights have come up with the idea of EyeRide.
On the HUD
EyeRide is an innovative solution for any rider. The HUD is compatible with most helmets, providing technology to make it possible for riders to check the maps with its display, see calls using the caller ID, and check songs being played on the user’s phone.
It has a display that integrates the smallest Nano HD OLED technology, combining infinite focus into the helmet’s display to bring a natural effect while looking through it. The display provides you 100% transparency and bright colors so that you never lose focus on the road.
EyeRide can display maps from Apple, Google, or Waze and plans in your line of sight for a concentrated riding experience. You can also use it along with your prescription glasses. The high functioning display ensures that you can have clear vision even behind your helmet’s sun visor without any problem.
It also comes with 55mm 99dB flat speakers and a directional microphone to provide a powerful sound and proper connectivity with other riders in unlimited range. Riders will now be able to enjoy music playing from Spotify or YouTube while on the road. The EyeRide is compatible with almost every helmet you find at the market. With its Bluetooth connectivity, you can pair it with Android or iOS apps.
