SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SKULLY (www.skullysystems.com), makers of the world’s first augmented reality motorcycle helmet, today announced that one year after winning the coveted 2013 DEMO God award, SKULLY Founder and CEO Dr. Marcus Weller will be a featured speaker as part of the DEMO Fall 2014 Conference being held November 18-20, 2014 in San Jose, California. Dr. Weller will speak at the Demo Alumni Update where he will highlight SKULLY’s successes over the past year since being named a DEMO God award winner. The Demo Alumni Update will take place Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 at 10:30AM.
“SKULLY was officially introduced at DEMO Fall 2013, so in a sense, this is sort of a homecoming for us,” said Marcus Weller, Ph.D., Founder and CEO of SKULLY. “So much has happened since winning the 2013 DEMO God award and I am excited to return to DEMO and give an update on the success SKULLY has achieved and where we are headed into 2015.”
SKULLY’s official unveiling of the AR-1 helmet, the first head-up display (HUD) helmet for motorcyclists, at DEMO Fall 2013 was met with global praise. Following its Demo God achievement, SKULLY attended SXSW 2014 and won the coveted SXSW Accelerator award in the Wearable Technology category. SKULLY went on to be named one of The CNN Ten: Inventions and also won both Best Wearable Device and Audience Choice at the annual Silicon Valley Business App (SVBA) Awards.
In August, 2013, SKULLY launched what would become a record-breaking presale campaign on Indiegogo. SKULLY met its $250,000 campaign goal in just eight minutes and went on to achieve more than $2.8M in preorder sales over the two month campaign. Motorcycle enthusiasts from 47 countries signed on to be the first to own a SKULLY helmet. It was the most successful tech campaign in Indiegogo history.
The SKULLY AR-1 helmet is scheduled for release in mid 2015. It is built upon the SKULLY Synapse™ technology platform that enhances awareness of its users by linking advanced HUD optics to an intelligent network including a camera, sensors and microprocessors. The AR-1 features a revolutionary HUD system that displays at a perceptual distance of 10 feet in front of the rider, a near 180-degree rearview camera, turn-by-turn GPS navigation, smartphone pairing and voice control, making it the world's smartest motorcycle helmet.
