Coolio!

I have to wonder if the technology will in fact be a distraction and hence make the rider unsafe.

The electronics could tend to take away attention from the actual task of riding

I was hoping to demo this helmet, but so far I've not been contacted?
With HUD, which includes 180-degree FOV rear-facing camera, I will not have a need to take my eyes on the road. I believe I/we would be safer while riding with almost 360-degree view of our surroundings. I've wished that Garmin would (I have suggested) include a rearview in their next ZUMO. My 15 cents!

A 360 degree view of your surroundings will be very disorienting to most people.

Our brains are not designed for that kind of sensory input.

I still believe that all of the modern electronics are a distraction from what we should be focusing on, safe riding or driving.

I like it. I don't think it has anything to do with how we're "designed", but more of what we're accustomed to. The brain is a powerful little bundle of crap, and can develop new ways of interpreting the input.

When I was much younger, I remember driving a friends car that had some mirror (I think from JC Whitney) that spanned from the very left to the very right side of the car. It was a replacement for the standard rear-view mirror that normally hangs from the center roof. It had (again, I think) 11 mirrors in various stages of tilt, and ended up providing a pretty clear image of near enough 170 degrees behind you. Sitting in the drivers seat, without moving my head, I could literally see 360 degrees around me. It was disconcerting at first, but very quickly became very useful.

Can't even find those mirrors for sale now, or I'd post a link. I imagine the Skully to be a lot like that, and also very useful.

Very much like that, yes. I can't say whether it was or wasn't a Wink, but I can say that the 30" the Wink is at it's longest listed on that page isn't enough.
