THE FATAL FLAW.
WHEN THE AVERAGE RIDER PUTS ON A HELMET, THEY’VE AUTOMATICALLY REDUCED THEIR ABILITY TO ACCURATELY PERCEIVE SURROUNDINGS.
The perception of space and distance in 360 degrees is built from the information we perceive through a combination of vision and hearing. This “re-connection” of these 2 senses is more than the simple sum of their 2 parts—it is an improvement of total sensory and spatial awareness. The full-face and 3⁄4 helmets with bat 8D® technology increase perception of location and distance of the surroundings in real time. It’s like echolocation for bats.
RESONAR® HAS DEVELOPED ACOUSTIC TECHNOLOGY THAT MIMICS THE SPATIAL AWARENESS OF A BAT IN FLIGHT.
The technology is designed to be seamlessly integrated into most full-face and 3⁄4 helmets that have been up to now exclusively designed to mitigate head trauma while an accident is occurring. Why could a protective helmet not evolve to assist a rider in collision avoidance in the first place?.
Using the battery-less and cordless bat 8D® technology by RESONAR®, more accidents could be avoided simply by restoring auditory awareness and reconnecting our hearing sense to our visual sense. Applicable to both street and off-road motorcycle use, this restored awareness fills in “deaf spots” we never knew were lost by covering up our ears with a protective helmet. Attenuated ear plugs for hearing protection work synergistically with bat 8D® by limiting excessive decibels while reconnecting spatial awareness when riding in crowded traffic conditions or racing without the use of rearview mirrors.
DESIGNED TO FIT ALL EXISTING HELMET DIMENSIONS, OUR DEVICE IS A REVOLUTIONARY (AND SIMPLE) ADAPTATION.
A rider who cannot determine the origin of an unseen and oncoming danger is at risk. RESONAR®’s proven research will enlighten scientists, helmet manufacturers, traffic safety organizations, insurance companies and riders about the need to reconnect the ears to improve all-around sensory perception.
REDUCES LATERALITY ERROR
Accurate proprioception (awareness of body position and movement) is essential in reducing the laterality effect. If the brain, via our 2 ears, cannot instantly “hear” the direction and distance of passing vehicles or traffic threats, our safety is compromised. Why would we choose to decrease hearing abilities and increase the loss of binaural auditory cues by covering up both our ears while operating a motorcycle?
RECONNECTS HEARING TO EYESIGHT
Our pair of eyes and our pair of ears have evolved over millions of years to work synergistically together, to greatly improve our overall awareness, well beyond what our eyes can do alone. RESONAR®’s bat 8D® technology reconnects our ears’ 360-degree spatial abilities to respond more quickly to changing environments while moving through space on an open motor vehicle.
EACH ENVIRONMENT PRESENTS A UNIQUE PERIMETER OF ACOUSTICS, DRIVING THE NEED FOR ACUTE SPATIAL AWARENESS.
A MOTORCYCLE MOVES UNIQUELY AND NIMBLY THROUGH SPACE AND TRAFFIC HAVING THE UNIQUE ADVANTAGE OF BEING SMALLER AND MORE MANEUVERABLE THAN AN AUTOMOBILE.
For this reason, the rider needs to be fully enabled with all their natural senses operating at peak performance levels.
RESONAR®’s bat 8D® technology does not amplify or modify surrounding sounds; to the contrary. It restores the rider’s ability to hear naturally so the audio-visual connection that has evolved over millions of years enabling us to “survive” …is reconnected while wearing a helmet.
