The expression “eyes in the back of his head” there is a real commercial embodiment in the form of a new Australian startup Cyclevision. He offers to equip the helmet with a dual set of cameras, with a viewing angle of 160 degrees each. The result is a 320 not a complete sphere, but enough to capture everything that happens in front of and behind the rider.

The camera has wide angle lenses, they record video in Full HD at 30 frames per second. For each device put its memory card 32 GB, the equivalent of 4 hours of video, which is automatically overwritten, replacing the old footage a fresh filling of the card. But this is unlikely to happen – battery 3200 mAh provides only 2-3. 5 hours for the whole system.

To read the videos and charging the battery use the micro-USB port, and Wi-Fi cameras can connect to a smartphone and broadcast rear view of the gadget attached to the Bicycle handlebar. This will help avoid the risk of difficult situations on the road, but if the incident does happen, the victim will be a detailed record of the incident.

The technology is not new and is well-known among professional riders, but in the area bikes can produce a small revolution. While the startup only raises funds with the help of the site Kickstarter, according to the plan production is to be launched this summer. If all goes well, each helmet Cyclevision will cost about $350.
