Invisible Bike Helmets Are Things That Exist Now

(Hovding)

Invisible bike helmets sound like something out of Harry Potter, but no, they actually exist! Swedish entrepreneurs Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin began working on the game-changer in 2005, as part of their design master thesis. They wanted bikers to actually want to wear a helmet — no small task, since, as Terese put it "They're so bulky, like a hard mushroom on your head."

So, with the help of a few trauma experts, the duo invented a super smart collar (pictured above) with sensors that react to abnormal movements, inflating a hidden head-encompassing cushion at the first sign of an imminent fall.


Pretty amazing, right? Just think — this could be the end of helmet hair. See it in action, below.
