Heads Up Display

The creators of the world’s first personal Heads Up displays have just created a powerful new feature – radar detection display. The SportVue MC2 alerts motorcycle riders of the presence of radar in a personal helmet-mounted display. Using radar detectors on a motorcycle is difficult because of increased road, traffic and wind noise. And it’s hard to mount a detector so the rider can see the display. The MC2 offers this plus MUCH more, particularly when hooked to a datalogger such as the compatible Veypor unit. Indeed, it's hard to argue against the MC2 not offering a degree of safety for motorcycle racing too - and it'd be handy to know your laps times as you're doing them so you know what's working on the stopwatch. It'd be more than handy to know how close the guy behind is and who it is too. For road riders, we've been mightily impressed with this idea since we first wrote about it. The addition of radar is an absolute no brainer for the sports motorcyclist and the addition of the datalogger is a godsend for the thinking sports motorcyclist. Read More

With an Augmented Reality system like Arvika, complex tasks such as repairs to a BMW 7 can be greatly simplified and speeded up. Augmented Reality means that, with the help of data glasses, a computer overlays virtual information onto what the viewer actually sees. Siemens Automation and Drives and all the partners in the Arvika project recently demonstrated just how powerful these systems have become. Read More
