Pump Up Your Helmet

Although it looks a bit like one of these hair dryer hoods for the seventies, the Hövding is in fact an airbag-like inflatable bicycle helmet. The brainchild of industrial designers Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin, the Hövding is worn like a collar around the neck. The collar contains a folded up airbag that is shaped like a hood, surrounding and protecting the cyclist's head. The trigger mechanism is controlled by sensors which pick up the abnormal movements of a cyclist in an accident. Once triggered, a gas inflator fills the helmet-shaped airbag in about 0.1 seconds. Women will surely love the Hövding since it not only eliminates helmet hair but also comes in several fashionable designs.
