I was reading the following article on Editions for iPad and I thought you might be interested in reading it too.

Questions and comments:

1. What does it cost?
2. Do the cameras compromise the helmet's protection?
3. Since it records only after the accelerometers detect an impact, the information is useless to determine who was at fault as the events leading up to the accident aren't recorded.  It might help identify a hit-and-run driver but that's about all.  The cameras would have to function continuously throughout a ride to provide any better information.

+1. Also, seems like some of the views would be blocked out when one is laying on the ground/in a ditch. And it looks God awful hot.
