A British design graduate has come up with a way to make the road a safer place for motorbike riders, using technology originally developed for jet fighter pilots.


Piers Tucker, 24, of Yorkshire, has created a motorbike helmet that is fitted with GPS technology, which displays information about what speed the bike is traveling.



The device means that the driver does not have to take their eyes off the road to monitor their speed.



Tucker says the idea is based on “Head Up Display” systems used by fighter pilots.



Although he does not ride a motorbike himself, he is a Formula One enthusiast and also has a passion for electronics and physics.



His invention is a result of combining the two interests, he says.
