Item: For $1,300 you can have the newest in wearable technology—a smartHUD motorcycle helmet.  The helmet augments navigation, incorporates a rear camera view and displays riding info on the visor itself. Voice activated commands and smartphone sync means your hands never leave the handlebars.

Why it Matters: The Heads Up Display, or HUD, has been slowly evolving beyond gaming and entertainment into real-world applications, including health and safety. As safety features for products become more aligned with technology, they’re looking into ways to make safety smarter. The idea is to let the technology focus on the little things while you pay attention to the road ahead.
