Invisible airbag cycle helmet wins design award
When we first saw the airbag cycle helmet last year, we were impressed. And it appears we were not the only ones -- it's just won a prestigious design award.
'Hovding' helmet -- which looks like a scarf and only springs into action when needed -- has scooped the play 'Index Award' at a gala event in the Danish capital Copenhagen.
The innovative helmet instantly inflates into an air-bag-style helmet when accelerometers and gyro-meters inside detect sudden jolt.
The Swedish designers say they came up with the creation to have a helmet which would not spoil their hair-do… but the 100,000 Euro prize money must be a nice bonus.
