One of the things I find most intriguing about gadgets is the prevalence of convergence. A great example of a convergent device is a Swiss Army knife. The Sena Smart Helmet may be the world’s first Swiss Army Cycling Helmet. It includes an integrated QHD camera and communication system. The camera allows the recording of up to 2 hours of QHD quality (1440p) video or FHD (1080p) video. The recorded image may be viewed live using a smartphone with WiFi. Also, the recording can be dubbed with the user’s voice, transmissions from the intercom, and music from the paired smartphone. You read this correctly – the helmet includes an intercom that will work over 900 m in open terrain to up to 3 other users. The integrated audio also allows the user to connect the helmet to a smartphone using Bluetooth 4.1. Integrated audio provides a hands-free method for listening to music, making phone calls, and receiving fitness data. Buttons on the side of the helmet control all functionality but a handlebar mounted remote may be purchased separately. Colors include: White, Blue, Green, Navy, Hi-Viz Pink, Cool-Grey, Light Blue, and Black. Info on pricing will be added to the Sena site when it is available.
