I made this video for one of the university projects. Background of this is the goggles idea i came up with which would allow user to switch music tracks using eyes while riding a motorcycle. I called it Strygez (SYZ) because inspiration for the design of goggles came from great horned owl. So you blink a few times and go on the next song, you can pause or play and adjust volume as well. Hardware is quite simple as well, built in rechargeable li-on battery, eye-trackers, processor and low range bluetooth. Concept works directly with your smart phone, so you turn the goggle on, find it with you phone via BlueTooth and it's ready to work. You put your phone in a pocket, put on your earphones, put on the helmet and the goggles, you ride and listen to what ever you want to listen. I have done a 3D printed prototype to see, touch and feel the form, but apart from that it is in a very concept stage.
Purpose of this project is purely educational and not commercial, I am not going to sell anything but just wanted to explore interesting and cool idea which would benefit the riders of all kinds.
Entire filming was done in Hong Kong - MX-CLUB with the help of Angus Lai, the owner and founder of this extreme sports facility. For which I am very grateful because it would be impossible without the help of Angus.
