Reevu (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/reevu/), that company that makes those nifty helmets with the built-in rear viewers (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/04/23/reevu-msx1-helmet-gives-riders-a-nice-view-of-their-behinds/) has another innovation for those of the two-wheeled persuasion. Expanding on the idea of a rear viewer, Reevu seems to have integrated a display into the top of the visor.

The system projects information, according to the images, ranging from turn-by-turn directions to speed to lap times. We'll admit, the information provided is quite thin. The helmet manufacturer apparently uses something called a multiple reflective optical system to display the information, claiming it won't strain the eyes or cause distraction for the driver.

Limited info aside, the potential of an in-helmet head-up display (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/heads+up+display/) is huge for people on two and four wheels. The same concepts that make this appealing for bikers would make it a must-have for any serious track enthusiast. Drivers could get everything from lap times and sector splits to emergency warnings if oil pressure were to drop. You can bet we'll follow this one closely.

Hopefully it looks better than the picture upon release. I don't wanna wear what looks like a fighter jet helmet on my bike...

Very cool concept and idea though.
