Reevu Open Reevu in a new window are those folks that have made several years ago a helmet with an integrated mirror, allowing you to see what is going on behind you from the top of your helmet where a mirror is integrated. This way your eyes would have to travel far less distance to "see" behind you. The idea is pretty interesting, but after a fast "mini-test" (link Open link in a new window) I noticed that your eyes needed to get used to the concept and the mirror is actually quite small, which worried me slightly.

Despite several attempts, Reevu never wanted to send over a review helmet for me to test properly, so I can only stand by my original review. Now Reevu are adding more information to the mix. They have what they call the "Intelligent EYE Helmet" device, a device that uses Reevu's own MROPS (Multiple Reflective Optical Systems - the process that makes it possible to see behind you) and projects data from integrated mobile communications into the mirror system. This data is presented to you the way a fighter pilots gets his data, in the form of a Heads Up Display (HUD).

The data projected onto the Reevu integrated mirror can be anything you want, like your motorcycle's performance, engine data or even GPS instructions. The data is projected into the mirror, not the visor.

Not much more information was available in their press release, but the graphics look cool. The idea of course is pretty nifty, having your mirror AND your data presented in your helmet... sci-fi at its best. Would this not be an ideal helmet for the motorcycle racers?

What worries me is the enormous amount of information presented in a rather small surface. If you read my initial review, you will see why. Anyway, interesting concept, let us see how long it will take for a real product to be brought to market.
