SKULLY Technologies Becomes First to Market With Its FENIX AR Smart Helmet
ATLANTA,GA -- Sep 25, 2018--SKULLY Technologies, designer and manufacturer of augmented reality (AR) that enrich and make for a safer riding experience, announces the company has begun rolling out shipment of its SKULLY FENIX AR motorcycle helmet – the first “smart helmet” to reach the market.
“We’re so excited to begin shipping the first of the SKULLY FENIX AR helmets,” said Ivan Contreras, co-founder and CEO of SKULLY Technologies. “Out of our passion for personal mobility and safety, we’ve created a whole new caliber of rider experience that is unprecedented in today’s market.”
Ivan and Rafael Contreras, successful serial entrepreneur cousins purchased the assets of Skully, Inc., a Silicon Valley start-up unable to bring the product to fruition. With deep expertise in mobility and advanced material design, the cousins share a vision for intelligent and sustained mobility globally that was born from their advanced studies at MIT. They named the company SKULLY Technologies, and in less than 18 months, finished development and added to the capabilities of its innovative helmet.
The FENIX AR is the world’s most intelligent smart helmet, bringing riders a unique, unparalleled experience that offers increased safety and optimal connectivity. The hotly anticipated FENIX AR features:
Smartphone integration with Bluetooth
Hands-free music controls
A sleek design with heads-up display Turn-by-turn navigation Voice control Rearview camera Smartphone integration with Bluetooth Hands-free music controls Anti-fog visor DOT certification
Making It Right
Following the acquisition of assets from the former SKULLY Inc., SKULLY Technologies announced its Make It Right campaign. It was created to do just that – to make sure everyone who pre-ordered or contributed to the previous start-up effort via Indiegogo receives a SKULLY FENIX AR helmet, an improved version of the SKULLY AR-1.
SKULLY Technologies is doing something unheard of by fulfilling the orders of a completely different company. The Make It Right campaign is a testament to how committed Ivan and Rafael Contreras are to the individuals who were early adopters of this ground-breaking technology.
