The AGVisor is a new motorcycle helmet visor that can darken or lighten in less than a second depending on light conditions. Developed by Italian helmet maker AGV, this visor's tinting effect occurs via a thin liquid crystal or LCD layer that is powered by a tiny rechargeable battery. The visor can be operated using a glove-friendly button located on its bottom left side.

The fully charged visor can hold a dark tint for up to 12 consecutive hours, which is longer than anyone would need a tinted visor anyway.

Set to be released in the coming weeks, the AGVisor will surely be a godsend to bikers looking to ensure their safety during long bike rides in changing light conditions.
