Recon Introduces the Recon Jet HUD

Recon Jet_whiteThe Recon Jet is a “heads-up display” for cyclists. It displays not only cycling computer information, but includes many smart phone features, including text messaging, photo and video capability, and social media integration. And the Recon Jet is built on an open platform, so anyone can develop apps to integrate their products or services for it.

The initial intent seems geared toward racers and super-serious recreational riders, but it’s possible that city cyclists might find a use for such a product. Perhaps couriers could make the best use of something like the Recon Jet. Maybe someday we’ll get our hands on one and find out. In the meantime, see what Wired had to say about the Recon Jet.
