Imagine driving without a speedometer or scuba diving without a depth gauge. Are you going 70mph or 90mph? Are you down 80ft or 100ft? Without a tool to provide you with a point of reference, it’s pretty hard to know, and without knowing, it’s difficult to make some pretty important decisions.
Flight HUD is designed with the skydiver, wingsuit pilot, and base jumper in mind to provide a Heads-up Display displaying Forward Speed, Glide Ratio, and Altitude, accessible at a glance.
The Heads-up Display technology and goggles have initially been designed for skiing. However, the sensors that are embedded in the hardware, and the nature of alpine goggles make re-purposing this package for skydiving and wingsuiting ideal. It is simply a matter of building the software and tweaking the sensors specifically for flight.
