        Srijan, it has a eye piece which reflects and display the area behind the rider. Its function is very much similar to that of a submarine's telescope which has arrangement of reflective glasses placed opposite at certain angels.

            errr!!! its periscope

            well.. practically how useful this helmet might be??? I still have my doubts.

            what if there is a beamer comming with its all four HID projectors lit? Will the glare travel back to the rider???

              Very cool innovation. Would love to have one. But, the rearview mirrors do the job better.

                This is nice stuff! Hope they are not patenting this...

                At 399 USD I could probably hire someone to seat behind me and look and warn me for life

                      I am sure the dust in india that is very expert to get in to hard to reach places will make this helmet not usabel in india to its full potential

                        At the moment, my bike's mirrors do decent job.. so, for now I seek for helmets with wipers... Any one have any idea?

                            So does this eye-piece stay on the riders eye all the time (i know it sounds silly, but moving a eye-piece every-time to your eye sounds dumb too) won't that cause a problem?

                            @cyclone2k- Actually they have developed a special type of glass that repels water, it is similar in concept to that of the surface of a lotus leaf
                            I'm too intelligent to the unintended, and too dumb for the obvious.

                              Understand ur Concern, riding in rain can be tuff.....with or without a visor.
                              My way is-Rub some kind of oily stuff on it......like...a silicon wax/ car polish etc.
                              else U can even Cut a potato and rub it on the visor.....wud solve the purpose for some time...
                              Its not about the BHP or the CC, its about one common religion called Biking!!!
