Amidst the plethora of fitness and activity trackers (most of which are little more than fanciful versions of pedometers), the Moov stands out as an all-round activity tracker that provides a mind-boggling array of data on your performance. For instance, strap the Moov on your ankle and learn about the landing impact, left-right bounce, and cadence as you pound the pavement. If you are into boxing, strap the Moov on your wrist and let it analyze your punches and jabs. Yes, the Moov actually analyzes your movements and provides feedback like how your jab didn’t land at the right spot because you didn’t rotate your shoulder enough. It is your personal fitness coach that is always by your side!

Now here’s a wearable tech device that will please not only the wearer but also the people around him.

The Skully AR-1 (the AR stands for augmented reality) motorcycle helmet has been designed to maximize the safety of the biker and that of the motorists and pedestrians around him. The helmet provides head up display, or HUD, that comes up about 15 feet ahead on the road and enables the rider to call up road or traffic information that he may need at any moment. A rear-mounted camera also feeds 180-degree rearview and blind spot images into the helmet that show up on the visor and in front of the rider’s eyes.

The Skully AR-1 motorcycle helmet sports the kind of augmented reality that we had drooled over when the first Terminator movies came out. But the Skully AR-1 is for real, and it will make our roads safer.
