When it comes to latest and greatest in technology, you can expect the military to be the ones to get their hands on it first, coming out with all different sorts of gizmos and gadgets that will help their guys and gals to more effectively complete missions while staying safer in situations that like to get a little bit hostile.
This time, all of that technology is loaded up in a helmet that aids in allowing pilots to have a 360° view, even when a part of their plane might be in the way, blocking their line of sight. From what we’re told, the tech will allow them to virtually see right through whatever obstacle it is impairing their vision.
What will all this cost? Well, from what we see here, it looks like a high-tech piece of carbon fiber head equipment will run somewhere in the ballpark of $400,000. I’m sure that this thing has lots of research and development that warrants the asking price but that is some major coin, no matter what way you shape it! Just think of all the things that you could buy with nearly half of a million dollars when checking out this helmet.
