Heads Up Display!

Now this would be awesome if they had it in your helmet on the street of the race track!

Nice. I'd think if they can fit that technology in a pair of goggles, it would be just as 'easy ' to put in a visor.

I think it would be EXCELLENT for on track info, I never look at my speedo, this would be ideal for speed comparisons ON TRACK, vs, the after the fact review when you download your GPS to the PC.

Lets say my best lap has me 72mph at the apex of T7 at BHF. Now, while on track, I can push to make sure I hit that, assuming I have traction for it, and it will help a rider work on weak spots in specific areas.

Seems awesome to me.

Of course... if you were Evil Kneivel and have to hit the ramp at 72mph in order to clear the 18 busses, that'd be nice too.

OR... if you were Doc Brown or Marty McFly and you need to hit 88mph in order to generate 1.21 gigawatts, it could be very helpful.

i definately see what youre saying and definately agree with off track review, but on track in as fluid of a situation as it can be i think it could be a libility to the rider rather than an asset

It all depends on the rider skill level.

I would NOT think it would be a good idea for any less than mid-NESBA A group. By the time you reach it to that point, you are looking for TENTHS of a second here and there. They all add up.

For a rider that is already overwhelmed, as most are, it would be a BAD thing, agreed.

Understood Alex, in a race, you are absolutely correct. But even racers analyze GPS tracking, and put together their best "theoretical lap". That is how Ortega broke the record there, and at that, he said that there was still more time to be saved.

This would allow a top rider to practice EXACTLY what they need to do in each corner, and/or segment. Most likely, focusing in practice about one corner or segment at a time.

I totally agree then at that level of riding, I could definately see the slower B and I riders getting this thing though and being totally overloaded, the same can be said about any of the monitoring/evaluation accessories though

Not that I checked whether it was shipping or not, but if it is Vaporware, who cares?

What I asked for they haven't even thought of yet. So would that be vapor-vaporware?

There was a company that was putting a heads up display out awhile back. I Think Jammin had one as a demo.

edit- I think this was the one.
