Skully Computerized Helmet Raises $11 Million

Google Glass-esque lid offers heads up display and more

Congratulations to Skully for raising $11 million in venture capital. The company makes computerized full-face helmets that have been compared to Google Glass. Hopefully, they'll meet with more success.

If you're not familiar with Skully, it's a San Francisco startup offering helmets with a screen in the bottom right inside the visor. Not only does said screen display information similar to a GPS navigation, the helmet also has audio and a camera on the back tell you what's going on behind you. This helmet, the AR-1, will also have Bluetooth capability for use with a smart phone. The AR-1 will have a battery life of nine hours. A prototype is expected in March. Helmets are already on back order. You can get more information here.
