Designed by Australian firm Cyclevision, the lightweight helmet has two HD cameras embedded into the frame and can even stream the footage from the rear camera to a phone on the handlebars.  Footage captured by the cameras is recorded on 4.5-hour ‘continuous overwriting loop’ which is stored on a 32GB SD card. The helmet has two 1080p micro HD cameras – one in the front and one in the back.  Cameras capture a 160-degree field of view each, recording everything going on in front and behind of the rider.  Footage is recorded on a 4.5 hour ‘continuous overwriting loop’ which is stored on a 32GB SD card. But a 256GB upgrade is available. A rechargeable lithium polymer battery provides 5 hours of recording time.  By connecting the camera to a phone mounted on the handlebars, the rider can keep track of hazards behind them.  But the firm offers an upgrade to 256GB for better vision data storage.  According to the Cairns-based firm, the CycleVision helmet weighs just 280 grams and all the components are waterproof.  To get the footage from the cameras, wearers plug into a USB port and vision and audio files can be easily transferred to a laptop.  It is powered by a rechargeable lithium polymer battery that can provide five hours of recording time.
