An Invisible Bike Helmet by Hövding

October 25, 2010

Christopher Jobson

The inflatable Hövding bicycle helmet designed by Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin isn’t on the market just yet, but the test footage above of repeated 20km collisions between bike and car suggests some serious money has been invested into this incredible device. The helmet works like an airbag that’s worn somewhat discretely around the neck and inflates just before impact. Awesome. (via core77)
