Look mom! No helmet! | Hövding. The amazing invisible helmet

1671292-poster-1280-hovding-invisible-helmet-05 Hövding-airbag-580x386 I’ll be the first to admit that I look pretty goofy riding my wife’s bicycle with my oversized helmet, designed to protect my oversized head, but I’m all about safety first and it drives me crazy when I see so many people speeding by without helmets. I would assume that the large amount of helmetless cyclists I see riding the streets of Toronto prefer not to look silly as I do, but come on guys, a helmet can save your life. Well thankfully a Swedish design duo, Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin have come up with a pretty ingenious and stylish solution. Hövding, an invisible helmet. The invention was developed as part of their Masters Thesis project in Industrial design at Lind University in 2005. After years of research, Hövding is finally on the market.

When I first saw images of people wearing this helmet, I was perplexed. What? Where is it? I must be missing something. Well, when I saw a video demo of this incredible invention I was blown away. You will be too. Check it out.
