AUCKLAND, New Zealand--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--REYEDR, a start-up from New Zealand, has been furiously developing their HUD for motorcyclists, over the last couple of months. They adopt a unique retrofit approach; their device when fitted to a full face helmet, converts it into a smart AR device. REYEDR is readying their prototypes to showcase to the world at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), 2017.
REYEDR’s (pronounced rider) mission is to connect motorcyclists with their machines in a way that transforms the ride experience. The way in which we view information on motorcycles has not really changed since being developed a century ago. AR combined with smartphone computing now provides the ability to improve safety by delivering key information at eye level. By eliminating distractions from looking down at the dash, motorcyclists can now ride safer by keeping their eyes on the road at all times, to look out for hazards.
The REYEDR HUD (with universal helmet mount) and REYEDR smartphone App deliver key information about the bike, route and ride group. Leisure motorcycling is a popular recreational activity in the developed countries; the social aspect of the App is designed to connect bikers to this large community and discover new routes, through those who have ridden in the past or to experience with those in their ride group. Motorcycling is a risky sport. By keeping riders geo-connected with their group and the ability to alert emergency services, we give riders and non-riding loved ones peace of mind.
REYEDR has attracted interest and support for their venture from the outset. A born-global firm, with operations in Auckland, New Zealand; REYEDR are now seeking Distributors, IoT collaborators and investors for their venture. They were finalists in the University of Auckland Spark Entrepreneurship Challenge 2015, and Alumni of the Lightning Lab Digital Accelerator 2016.
Visit REYEDR at CES January 5 - 8, 2017 at Eureka Park Marketplace, Sands Hall G – 51236.
