We've shown you a similar device made for bicycles that could work for motorcycles (link Open link in a new window). Here's another one that was designed for bicycles but could be fun to adapt for motorcycles. It's not a product yet, just a concept, so don't go looking for it at your local bicycle shop.

Open Sight GPS Display

The concept is thought of by designer Kim Tae-Jin and is called Open Sight Open Open Sight link in a new window. What it is, is a GPS with a laser pointer. Instead of showing you a street map and a car (or motorcycle) symbol, forcing you to look to the GPS fixed to your handlebar, it beams directions on the road in front of you (but it also still has directions on the unit).

The idea is that you don't need to move your eyes all the way down to your handlebars, de-focusing in the process. Your eyes stay on the road and you see the direction while maintaining eye contact with traffic.

Obviously the laser beam has to be strong enough to see in daylight, and also visible when it hits objects in front, like cars, buses, etc. But as an idea, it's neat. Maybe not very practical, but it beats paying money for a heads-up display in your helmet.
