Skully, the San Francisco based makers of one of the world’s first augmented reality motorcycle helmets, has announced that the AR-1 helmet will be made available for pre-order as an exclusive holiday offering. This is the public’s first opportunity to order the AR-1 since the completion of Skully’s record breaking $2.8M Indiegogo campaign earlier this year. Skully’s exclusive holiday pre-order campaign will begin December 8, 2014 and will end January 8, 2015. To order a Skully AR-1 helmet, visit, http://www.skullysystems.com/
“We continue to be inundated with requests from people who missed out on the Indiegogo campaign, but want to get their hands on a Skully helmet either for themselves or, in some cases, to give as a holiday gift,” said Marcus Weller, Ph.D., Founder and CEO of Skully. “So we worked with our suppliers to increase the early production availability and are proud to announce that a limited supply of AR-1 helmets will be available for pre-order just in time for the holidays.”
As part of the holiday offering, customers who purchase an AR-1 helmet during this campaign will receive a free Skully holiday card and dog tag that can be used to alert gift recipients that a Skully AR-1 helmet is on the way. The AR-1 retails for $1499 with shipping scheduled for July 2015.
The Skully AR-1 helmet is built upon the Skully Synapse technology platform that enhances awareness of its users by linking advanced HUD optics to an intelligent network including a camera, sensors and microprocessors. The AR-1 features a revolutionary HUD system that displays at a perceptual distance of 10-feet in front of the rider, a near 180-degree rearview camera, turn-by-turn GPS navigation, smartphone pairing and voice control, making it the world’s smartest motorcycle helmet. The Skully AR-1 helmet is scheduled for release in mid 2015.
