Groundbreaking P1 Motorcycle Helmet Outfitted with Heads-Up Display, GPS and Rear-View Camera Receives Rave Reviews From Attendees
SANTA CLARA, CALIF – OCT 17, 2013 – Silicon Valley-based Skully Helmets has been awarded the “DEMOgod Award” at DEMO 2013, a world-renowned conference with a reputation for consistently identifying cutting-edge technologies. Skully’s P1 helmet, which incorporates an intelligent Heads-Up Display (HUD) system, GPS and rear-view camera for increased rider awareness and safety, was officially unveiled at the conference to rave reviews from conference attendees, culminating with the presentation of the DEMOgod award.
“The reaction to the P1 was unbelievable,” said Marcus Weller, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of Skully Helmets. “Going into DEMO, we felt we had something very special and to have that validated by all of the positive response and ultimately a ‘DEMOgod Award’ is very exciting. We are honored to receive this award and look forward to bringing Skully Helmets to market.”
The DEMOgod Awards program is a celebration of entrepreneurship and innovation. Recipients are chosen after giving a four-minute pitch on their product, showing off its most compelling features, differentiating it from other products and, along the way, entertaining a tough and critical DEMO audience. Presenters are then judged for their style, passion, clarity, and likelihood the product will be a commercial success.
During the Skully Helmets presentation, CEO Marcus Weller showcased the P1 helmet, focusing on the Skully Synapse™, a patent-pending intelligent Heads Up Display (HUD) that places relevant data just outside of a rider’s line of sight, the 180-Degree Rearview Camera that captures the full panorama including rear and side-to-side visibility, and the Skully Operating System that allows riders to stay connected to their world.
Skully Helmets will soon be beta-testing the helmets with an anticipated market release in 2014. For more information about Skully Helmets, visit www.skullyhelmets.com
