Two weeks ago we reported that Skully might be going out of business. Now it has been confirmed by Asphalt & Rubber website that it really is the end of the road for the manufacturer of augmented reality helmets.
The news follows Skully’s recent top management changes, assurances that helmets will be delivered (the most recent blog post on their website is still titled ‘Delivering on Our Promise‘), and the last-minute attempts to find fresh financing as the proverbial really hit the fan.
According to the American website, Skully has written to its backers and customers, informing them that the company will file for bankruptcy. This means that no AR-1 helmets will be shipped, and there’s a good chance that those who have pre-ordered their lids will lose their money.
This is the letter that Asphalt & Rubber says Skully sent to it’s backers:
