Predator Motorcycle Helmet Laser


You've most likely seen the original Predator motorcycle helmet released a few years ago, but now Nitrinos has updated it with a 3-point laser module. To be more specific, these aluminum encased red lasers - up to 5mW - are visible in fog or smoke when activated. For those wondering if this is safe? "Lasers with such power don't hurt the retina. LASERs are switched by means of a microsized button at the bottom of the helmet. Two AAA batteries shall be used in order to switch the lasers," according to the company.

Colored ink is also available, where the ink is visible in normal light (as with a regular tattoo) but the ink will glow vividly under UV light. However, some UV inks are not as bright under normal light as normal tattoo ink and are considered not as vibrant. Click here for a few bonus images. Continue reading to see them all.
