smart lids from down under

Australian smart helmet maker Forcite has finally launched in the UK, with an introductory discount for early buyers of its MK1S lid. Forcite has developed its own bike helmet design, which incorporates an array of add-on electronics – action camera, speakers, microphones and a Bluetooth link – together with a ‘heads-up’ display that conveys information to the rider. The 1080p camera and Harman-Kardon audio system connect to a smartphone app which also controls the LED display, which shows warnings about speed cameras, traffic conditions and navigation. The ECE 22.05/DOT-approved MK1S charges in about 90 minutes and lasts up to seven hours in use. SRP is £929, with the first 500 UK buyers offered a discount to £799.
