The Skully P-1, a motorcycle helmet with a heads-up display, rear-view camera and smartphone connectivity, was unveiled last week at the DEMO Fall 2013 conference, where it was one of five companies to win the DEMO God award.

The DOT-certified helmet was conceived by Skully founder Marcus Weller shortly after he was involved in a motorcycle accident while trying to read street signs, Engadget reports. To help eliminate navigational distractions, the P-1 features a HUD similar to Google Glass that appears in the bottom-right corner of the visor opening, out of riders' primary field of vision and appearing to float six meters ahead, according to Skully. The helmet runs a modified Android operating system built to work with or without a data connection, and the display, which can give turn-by-turn directions, connects to a rear-facing camera with a 180-degree field of view.

But the helmet also allows riders to stay connected to their smartphones via Bluetooth. Paired with a smartphone, the voice-operated P-1 can make phone calls, send texts and control music playback.

Watch a short demonstration of the Skully P-1 in the video below.
