I have big time doubts.  Also some helmets allow better vision in the rain the others, which I think depends on the slant of the face shield.

Where there is a need there will be a dreamer that will solve that need, practical or not.  I have a built in wiper on the left index finger of my waterproof gloves, its simple and works well.

Interesting.

 I'd rather have the woman, shown in the helmet, (without wiper) with her arms around me, ready with a microfiber cloth in one hand  scooter

What I would wonder is how long before it leaves scratch lines in your shield. All it would take is a piece of sand or dirt to get caught in the blade & your plastic shield could be toast. Tried something similar for Goldwing windshields a few years ago. Didn't take off. MHO.

I think that's a mannequin MD or a whole lotta PhotoShop.

As far as the wiper, I don't think I would want that much extra weight on top on my helmet.

The only problems I can see with this are, the size of it would make it very difficult if not impossible to put the helmet inside a scooter and if you left it locked outside on a scooter/bike someone could steal it. As well, the point already mentioned of the risk of scraping the visor, the extra weight, and the risk of it falling off.

Then again, if people are stupid enough to buy Segways, bottled water, and stand-up kayaks......
