The "New" Bike Helmet?

If you have ever been in a bike accident and you were wearing your helmet, good for you! It probably saved your life.

For some reason or another, it’s deemed “uncool” or “weird” to wear one of those potentially ugly bike helmets.

So, with that in mind, what if you could have a bike helmet that was INVISIBLE?

Well, two women in Sweden came up with this new invention that essentially is invisible. Instead of putting a helmet on, you strap something around your neck. Then, if you fall, it senses the impact and deploys and AIRBAG that goes around your entire HEAD.

The idea is picking up a lot of steam; even General Electric is talking about it.

To see what it would even look like, watch this raw crash-test footage with a biker getting hit a 20 mph.
