Motorcycle technology continues to change and innovate – and so does gear technology, specifically helmets. Modern helmets are safer, more comfortable, easier to use and enjoy, and more versatile than ever before, but there are more innovations coming. Enter the smart helmet.

There's far more in the actual article. Towards the bottom of the page, there are specific comments on several helmets and where the future might lead.

What I would like to see is a helmet that shuts off the engine of cars/trucks that
are making a left turn in front of me. There are cars that shut the engine off at
stop lights so this should not be too hard to do. Left turning drivers are the single
most hazard to us.

Actually YOU are the biggest hazard to your safety.  Left turners are like 3-4.  A helmet that tells you that you are coming into hot into a corner before it it happens would be the biggest help.  If it would warn of road hazards before you can see them that would be a great one too.  I want one with built in AC.  If my brain is cool enough I can drive safer.

I want one with targeting HUD like a modern fighter pilots helmet and tie it to a hologram projector that will project a hologram of a large middle finger onto the windshield of the cage of my choosing!!!  :))

RWulf's KLR doesn' allow him to come into a corner too hot. :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:
