Luge MicroCam

So they don't have to lift their head or look 'down.'

This camera fits on the front end of the luge sled and broadcasts to a high-speed display fitted inside their helmet. This allows the luger to see what's coming without lifting their head or looking down towards the track. Might be tricky with the bumps.

Just add a duvet and the picture is complete.

       I was hoping that by keeping their head down the aerodynamics would be improved, but yeah, the steering issue does surface. I'm also uncertain how you'd practically view any display while sliding down what certainly must be a high-vibrational load.

       Not to be confused with the Luigi MicroCam.
