Very few details are available on this one but another motorcycle helmet is coming that is claiming to be a HUD helmet. This one is a partnership with Shoei and NS West (a Japanese company).


From the NS West website...

Ns West Inc. has been developing a technology of our Smart Helmet for motorcycle riders. Mass production is planned in the near future. We will be hold our first exhibition at the CES*1 (Consumer Electronic Show) in Las Vegas, Nevada-USA.

NS West is a manufacturing company based in Hiroshima prefecture, which develops, manufactures, and sells Vehicle Instrument Cluster and Vehicle HUD(Head Up Display).

While developing our Smart Helmet, we utilized the optical and electronic technologies in our manufacturing of HUDs for automobiles. This makes it possible to provide information such as GPS to the riders with minimal eye movement, therefore enabling motorcycle riders to be more secure and safer. So, our aim is always to provide a high-quality riding experience by providing a lightweight, compact and yet stylish design in compliance with the safety standards of each country.

*1:CES2019 will be held for four days from January, 8th to the 11th.
Only media and pre-registered guests can only enter our exhibition area.

I emailed NS West and asked them for a media appointment on the last day of the CES and they came back saying I could come by their booth anytime before the close of the show that day. Unfortunately the time got away from me and I wasn’t able to make it to their booth to see their progress.

Indeed they are a good helmet company.

This linked article is not a whole lot more information on what Shoei is doing with their partner NS West but it is worth referencing here in this thread.
