CES 2016: Skully

Most of you who have listened to my show know that I ride motorcycles and one thing I never skimp on is what I wear on my head. You will never see me without a helmet and I found my next one here at CES2016.

I got to interview Bobby Penn, Executive Sales Director at Skully systems, about their AR-1 helmet. This helmet provides the rider with advanced situational awareness through its use of intelligent heads up display and the advanced optics and a intelligent array of cameras, sensors and microprocessors that together provide 180 degrees of awareness to the driver.

This helmet is a great advancement in rider safety and well worth checking out.
