Default Bluetooth Helmet

Just saw this in Motorcyclist. Dainese is making a helmet with speakers and a mic. It will be able to connect to bluetooth phones, and will also be able to connect directly to other bluetooth helmets. The dainese site was kindof a bitch to get through, so I've copied the paragraph about it.


From www.dainese.com

Now the Airstream Course Bluetooth® family, with the same features as the Airstream Course helmet, is enriched with new graphics: as well as the traditional Soft Titanium version, in 2006 Kirishima will also be available with Bluetooth® technology. With the Bluetooth® helmet line, Dainese enters the world of connectivity thanks to an interactive telephone-helmet communication system. The built-in wireless Bluetooth® system enables the rider to use the phone in complete safety, keeping both hands free. The helmet features an earphone and a front microphone housed in a special anti-noise shell, enabling communication without disturbance or interference. All you need to do is connect a Bluetooth® phone to your helmet: press the multi-function key at the rear of the shell to enable wireless connection, letting the system dialogue with any other telephone equipped with Bluetooth® technology. An LED on the “enable” key signals the operating status during use. The Bluetooth® connection also functions as a wireless interphone, even without a telephone (and so no phone bills to pay): just press the multi-function key for communication between two Bluetooth® helmets during short or long-distance touring. When the system is used as an interphone, only the "master" helmet (previously designated as such) can use the telephone connection. The Bluetooth® runs on rechargeable batteries housed in the polystyrene: just connect your helmet to the battery charger provided as standard when you get off your bike and let it recharge before your next journey. D-Tec® presents Air Stream Course Bluetooth®, the new racing helmet enabling the freedom of communication. Developed from ergonomic and aerodynamic studies conducted by the Dainese R&D Department, the Air Stream Course Bluetooth® helmet combines the latest communication technologies with safety research: the perfect helmet for racing bike lovers open to technological innovation.

Very true. I thought the helmet to helmet communication is one of the best features of it.

Traditionally bluetooth has had a limited range, around 30 feet. So I don't imagine it would be too useful on rides, even if they doubled the range you'd still have to be riding pretty close to talk to anybody else. They probably had passenger talking to driver in mind. I guess you could just give the other rider on call on their cell and talk to them that way.

Yeah, most likely only a passenger, or just when you get close enough to the other rider.
