Fusar Transforms Old Helmets To Smart Helmets
Connected action sports merchandise manufacturer Fusar introduces the Mohawk system at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show. It is a system that transforms traditional helmets to smart helmets.
Instead of reinventing helmets, the Fusar Mohawk works with any existing helmets out in the market. Users will just have the main component clipped to a helmet to transform it into a smart and safe helmet. The Fusar Mohawk helmet kit will soon be available at a price tag of US$549, while backers from its Indiegogo campaign can get the kit for only US$349.
The Fusar Mohawk system is currently competing at the 2016 Consumer Electronic Show's Hardware Battlefield category. With the Mohawk kit, users are permitted to add an activity tracker, a communication device, a music player, a navigation unit, an action camera, a black box and even an emergency alert system on helmets. A standard action camera can be mounted on either the top or the side of a helmet with the help of the Mohawk kit. With the kit installed on helmets, users can control everything through an app that can be installed on smartphones. For example, users can start recording videos through the app with the help of the Mohawk camera that shoots videos at 1080p or take pictures at 12 megapixels.
The best part in Fusar's kit is that users are able to utilize a feature known as HotShot that records 15 seconds of video and directly upload it to the user's social network accounts. In other words, it is like having a GoPro mounted on helmets. The Mohawk system is also in direct competition with GoPro for smart cameras category.
Consumers have to this take into consideration when looking for price tags as they would not have to buy a GoPro camera in addition to the Mohawk system. Also, Fusar's camera looks much better than mounting a GoPro camera on helmets.
For people who do not want to use smartphones while riding motorcycles or bikes, Fusar also provides LED indication buttons for wrists or handlebars. A communication headset is also available that enables users to talk with their buddies in a walkie-talkie style. Fusar also tracks user ability with GPS, gyroscope, magnetometer and accelerometer.
Not only that the Fusar system can get user statistics but also that it can be an essential tool as a built-in detection system for crashes. If something bad happens to its user, the system will alert near EMS dispatchers and even alert emergency contacts and send the user's location.
