1. Noise cancelling crash helmet
It’s one of those developments that makes you wonder why no one has thought of it before.
US firm Sena has created what it says is the world’s first ‘noise-control’ helmet, filtering out wind noise which can damage your hearing but leaving other sounds like traffic and sirens still audible.
The system ‘analyses sound information from an array of four networked microphones and adjusts in real time to phase out harmful helmet noise’, offering the same control as noise-cancelling headphones according to the firm.
A Bluetooth intercom lets you also communicate with up to eight other riders.
The noise-control helmet is ‘coming soon’ according to Sena’s website.
