Photochromic Motorcycle Helmet Visor

Sunshift motorcycle helmet visor
Here's an interesting product from a company (ACSAS Technology Company) who seems to be getting ready a whole range of motorcycle technology products. The product in question is a photochromic visor for motorcycle helmets. You know those glasses people wear that get dark when they are outside, and then return to clear when inside ?? Well, this is the same principle, but this is for motorcycle helmet visors.

Named the Sunshift, the visor shifts from a clear visor to 50% tint in about 1 minute. Shifting back to clear can take some 5 minutes !

Personally, I think it's nifty and usable, but what happens when you ride during a sunny day and enter a dark tunnel....(this in contrast with the Swedish electronically controlled Chromogenics {link}, a product that seems to have disappeared).

Other products that ACSAS have or are working on:
  • M5 Switchblade power system for crash helmets- an interchangeable, power supply that can be integrated into any helmet.
  • ACSAS Advanced Compensating Shock Absorbing System - a liquid-based impact-protection system that is easily integrated into any helmet.
  • Bluetooth Wireless, Handsfree Communication for Motorcycle and Crash Helmets - fully integrated and seamless bluetooth communication system for helmets.
