After almost nine years of research and development two Swedish designers have invented a new way to keep cyclists safe on the roads — an invisible helmet. The new helmet is in fact an airbag that fits into a large collar around the cyclist’s neck.
A pair of late evening cyclists found a forgiving New Zealand cop who understood their need to “experiencing total freedom,” but told them their freedom ended at their heads and they needed to put on helmets.
The special helmet was developed for the highly advanced F-35 Joint Strike Fighter plane. The JSF Test Helmet will provide the pilot with a 360-degree view and infrared imagery of the land below at night.
