RESONAR: ‘Ten Questions’ Video Discusses Directional Sound Importance to Motorcyclists

Inventor Luis Felipe Morales undergoes an interrogative gauntlet regarding his new technology and how it will change the world of helmeted riding globally.

Motorcycle riders of yesteryear “didn’t know what they didn’t know” before modern helmets evolved from pith-helmet pudding bowls into the modern starship-designed energy management devices they are today. Innovations like ventilation, communications, dual-density EPS liners, rotational acceleration suppression technologies, fog-free and solar-darkening face shields, moisture-absorbing liners all vastly improve comfort and protection. Now a sound-directionally sensitive helmet that fills in a rider’s “deaf spots” where his eyes cannot see is available from RESONAR. 

Documented in a “Ten Question” video series, inventor Mr. Luis Felipe Morales undergoes an interrogative gauntlet regarding his new technology and how it will change the world of helmeted riding globally. Developed originally only for developing nations with crowded, noisy traffic environments where hundreds of helmeted riders of motorcycles and scooters travel in “flocks,” the simple and affordable directionally sound-sensitive technology enables riders to maintain a sounder “safety bubble” by keeping more distance from other riders and larger vehicles.

A RESONAR-equipped ¾ or full-faced helmet enables a rider to better focus his eyes ahead while his ears now are better enabled to hear dangers from behind.

Mr. Morales notes, “Rearview mirrors are valuable, but still require taking a rider’s attention away from what is in front of him. With a RESONAR-enabled helmet, the rider can now maintain improved forward-focus while also better detecting sounds from behind, thus increasing his 360-degree awareness. Plus, the improved natural sound relieves any sense of helmet-caused claustrophobia and improves overall proprioception and sensitivity to the constantly changing traffic environment.”
