Heads up display???

Recommended Posts

So has any one thought of a heads up display for skydiving.

I thought it would be a cool product if you could get a display that could provide a read out from an instrument, say a altimiter, or a GPS, on the inside of a full face helmet (or a see through eye piece).

It definetly isn't KISS (keep it simple stupid) but I bet it would be awesome for deaf sky divers, or wingsuit dives.

Done and I beleive used on the last world record.



Yes the OPTIMA lcd pannels. I like those, but I was thinking a step beyond something that just flashes or changes color, to something that actually provides the given altitude in real time.

Nope not the Optmia, the titan as seen above.

Couldn't find it on alti-2's web page anymore but I did a minute of snooping:

Wow, there is a SPW sticker on the pictures of the test jumpers. That's my rigger John Storrie! ;)
