Winterhawk's Helmet
by Rat

This is a helmet I designed because I hate having people or things catch me by surprise from behind. It appears to be a normal, matte-black helmet with polarised faceplate. It has flare compensation built in, but that's not the important part. I had a tiny camera built in, with the lense facing rearward. The images from the camera are not recorded, but they are flashed on a small heads-up display in the lower corner of the helmet's faceplate. Thus, I can keep an eye on things that might be sneaking up on me without having to turn around.

Naturally it isn't foolproof (you have to be looking at the display--it doesn't alert you automatically), but any advantage is worthwhile in the shadows.
