Invisible Bike Helmet

My husband has been talking about getting a bike for a while now.  He works about 10 minutes away from our home, so it would be much more efficient and green to ride a bike to work, but more so, great exercise.  I told him I think it's a great idea, and I'm totally for it.  BUT...if he gets a bike, he has to get a helmet.  Well, his immediate answer was, "I don't need a helmet."  Typical, I know.  And so, a debate ensued, where I said yes you do, and he said no I don't, and it went on for about 10 minutes.  We got no where, but either way, I'm going to make him wear one, whether he likes it or not.

Two swedish students have come up with a great idea, an invisible bicycle helmet.  And the idea belongs to two women :) Props to these two young women for their marvelous idea.  I hope it succeeds and makes it way to us as soon as possible.

Watch the video, it's amazing.  I figured out pretty early on in the video what it was, but not how it works?  What about you?

I'm just wondering, what happens if the sensors don't work?

  1. What a fabulously clever idea! I want one! I hate those helmets - make me look like something out of a science fiction movie! :)
