GPS HUD Helmet
It looks like finally GPS, Heads Up Display (HUD) and helmets technology are merging ! What could be better than having your GPS information displayed inside your helmet so that you don't need to take your eyes of the road while riding your motorcycle.

The US Army's Natick Soldier Systems Center is developing a special helmet. It's going to be full of gadgets.

It'll feature a Heads Up Display (HUD) that will show GPS information and PDA-based mission planning data inside the helmet for their special forces soldiers (ie Navy Seals) when jumping from airplanes doing HALO (High Altitude Low Opening) or HAHO (High Altitude High Opening) jumps.

Since these jumps often involve fog, rain and dense clouds, the helmets should permit the soldiers to steer towards their target.

Nifty, and hopefully that technology will find itself towards motorcycle helmets.
