Russian Startup Designs Motorcycle Helmet With Google Glass Capabilities 

LiveMap, a Russian-based startup, is creating a motorcycle helmet with built-in navigation and visuals akin to Google Glass. The helmet will be equipped with an earpiece for alerts, a microphone for voice commands, and a digital compass for tracking head movement.

As described in LiveMap’s video introducing the project, the purpose of the helmet is to make riding and navigation easier on motorcyclists who often have to look down at screens while riding or pull over to the side of the road to operate their GPS devices. 

According to Mashable, the helmet won’t operate with iOS or Android, but it will use its own interface so users won’t be distracted by other media while riding.

LiveMap intends to ship the helmet in August 2014 starting at $1,500 - $2,000.
