My name is Aaron, first time poster here. I am from a start-up in Sydney, Australia called Forcite Helmet Systems. Thought I would share with you all a project myself and a few others have been working on for the past year and a half.
As skiers and snowboarders ourselves, we want wearable tech on us while out, but get frustrated from having bulky, external components attached, and even worse losing parts when they fall off or when they are misplaced. We chose to do something about it and have invented the world’s first smart snow sports helmet! It has a 4K High Definition camera, helmet-to-helmet communication system, Bluetooth, WiFi, motion sensors for analytics, GPS, 6-8 hour battery, instant editing and social sharing and an impact sensor all safely contained within a helmet that has integrated buttons on the sides we have designed from the ground up. We call it Forcite Alpine, here it is below.
If you are interested in knowing more, please check out our Kickstarter page in the link below - it is available for pre-orders!
We have been featured in TIME Magazine, Gizmag, Gizmodo and a whole bunch of others.
Any questions, you can ask me here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, your support would be greatly appreciated to help us get this off the ground and reach our goal to make these for you all.
Here is a video of our helmet in action at Queenstown in New Zealand;
Would be great to know what you all think!
