Invisible bike helmet from Sweden promises not to mess up your hair, while still keeping your head safe [video]

For safety reasons it is highly recommended that you always wear a helmet when riding your bicycle. In most countries it is mandatory for kids, but optional for adults.

Even though accidents happen people don’t learn and there are lot of reasons why the helmet is not widely used. Some find it annoying, some are just lazy… Whatever the reason it would be great to see an alternative solution to today’s helmets to keep rider’s head safe in case of an accident and as a plus side avoids dreaded helmet hair. It is pretty funny how people’s hair may look after a long ride with a helmet. Funny or not, safety should always come first.

Two Swede’s have come up with the idea of an invisible helmet that won’t mess up your hair.

Design students Anna and Terese took on a giant challenge as an exam project in grad school and the product is literally ready.

The technology is similar to the one found in motorcycle racing safety technology, though I personally can not see how wearing a thick and heavy collar is an improvement over a conventional helmet. I’ll stick to my old school helmet for now.

Check out the video below to see their story.
