Hovding airbag cyclist helmet goes on sale

275x250.jpg Remember that invisible airbag helmet for cyclists we told you about a couple of years ago? Well the Hovding is finally going on sale.

The 'Hovding' helmet is the brainchild of Swedish designers Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin who received requests for a helmet which would not spoil your hair-do.

Now, eight years after starting work on the device, their vision is finally being realised and the bizarre helmet is going on sale for around £350.

The bizarre helmet looks like a scarf and only springs into action when accelerometers and gyro-meters inside detect sudden jolt. If the wearer is involved in an accident the helmet inflates in under 0.1 second to cocoon their head.
