SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SKULLY (www.skullysystems.com), makers of the world’s first augmented reality motorcycle helmet, today announced that the AR-1 helmet will be made available for pre-order as an exclusive holiday offering. This is the public’s first opportunity to order the AR-1, the first heads-up display (HUD) helmet for motorcyclists, since the completion of SKULLY’s record breaking $2.8M Indiegogo campaign earlier this year. SKULLY’s last-chance holiday pre-order deal will begin December 8, 2014, and will end January 8, 2015. To order a SKULLY AR-1 helmet, visit http://www.skullysystems.com/store
“We continue to be inundated with requests from people who missed out on the Indiegogo campaign, but want to be one of the first to get their hands on a SKULLY helmet either for themselves or as a holiday gift,” said Marcus Weller, Ph.D., Founder and CEO of SKULLY. “We worked with our suppliers to increase early production availability and are proud to announce that a limited supply of AR-1 helmets will be available for pre-order just in time for the holidays.”
As part of the holiday offering, customers who purchase an AR-1 helmet as a gift during this year-end sale will receive a free SKULLY dog tag and downloadable Christmas card which can be used to alert gift recipients that a SKULLY AR-1 helmet is on the way. The SKULLY AR-1 holiday offering retails at $1499 USD with shipping scheduled for July 2015.
The SKULLY AR-1 helmet 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. The SKULLY AR-1 helmet is scheduled for release in mid 2015.
