As a Kickstarter project, the EyeRide has had great success, having pledged €827,138 of a €11,512 goal (approximately 1,261,685 CAD). The EyeRide is a patented all-in-one device featuring a Sony OLED display, GPS, hands-free kit and voice command. The helmet has been tested for safety, and is deemed safe by US, EU & CA regulations to make sure you get the protection you need while riding.

The EyeRide can display Google Maps and Plans in the driver’s line of sight, and is both bright and transparent so the driver can focus. The helmet also has 55mm 99dB flat speakers and a directional microphone to give riders a powerful sound experience and connectivity with other riders. You can even use Spotify & Youtube music to make sure you ride to the best playlist. The device can be mounted to any helmet and also works for riders who wear glasses, having an incredibly easy set-up: it only takes 128 seconds to install EyeRide into your helmet of choice.

To pre-order the EyeRide Helmet, head on over to their Kickstarter page. EyeRide will ship anywhere in the world, with delivery to be expected sometime in July.
