The Bloom Helmet is not what you think it is. On the surface, it looks like a colorful bicycle helmet that can quickly become compact. Well, that's only half right. Yes, the Bloom Helmet is designed to be ultra-portable, but it's not a bicycle helmet. No, it's actually designed for unexpected disasters. It was created by the Japanese company Toyo Safety and is intended to be used as a last resort against falling debris.

Natural disasters strike unexpectedly, and it doesn't help matters that Japan sits on fault lines. The Bloom Helmet can fold down to a smaller size and weighs only a pound. Despite its small size and weight, the helmet has passed all required safety tests and is on sale now for $40.
