HUD Development + Thanks
« on: September 19, 2015, 02:21:23 PM »
Hi guys/gals,

My name is Gary and I'm a creative technologist and specialist in Mechatronics. Firstly, I want to say a BIG thanks to those that participated in my previous survey for my uni project. The significant response has encouraged me to take the idea further where my team and I have begun to build and prototype a helmet mounted HUD (head-up display). I am now seeking alpha and beta testers whose feedback on feature preferences through periodic surveys, will help me design a prototype for road testing and a go-to-market strategy. If you are keen to see a product that will transform your ride experience then please complete this survey! Won't take long

Here's a quick outline of our concept:
A holographic display fitted to your visor that will provide real time information of your ride without cluttering your vision. The way the HUD works is that it will display information that is provided wirelessly from your smartphone.

Also, like I promised before here are some quick stats on what I found out last time.

56% of people who did the survey were interested in an auto SOS emergency indication/localisation. This number could have been caused by the high accident rate of 60% of the survey participants. 84% of the participants have or use smart phones, where 78% of these people actively use their phone on rides. The age distribution is relatively even. Participants aged 25-39 had a the highest usage of 25%.

Ranking of Importance by participants:
1) Safety
2) Performance/Power of Bike
3) Aesthetics (Power ragers)

Thanks again for doing the survey last time!

Here is the link again to the new survey to where you can register your interest at the end.
