An engineer is trying to improve the safety of cyclists everywhere by making foldable bike helmets that can fit into any backpack. Cycling-related deaths are rampant in metropolitan areas while the prevalence of helmets remains minimal. The traditional, clunky and immobile design of the life-saving headpiece is a major deterrent for cyclists everywhere.

Cyclists will often opt to leave their expensive helmets at home for fear of them being stolen should they be left on their parked bike due to their shape, which restricts portability for those on the go.

'Morpher' aims to amend this issue with its foldable, portable bike helmets, which are just as strong and safe as any other helmet on the market. Its easy-to-collapse properties allow for the helmet to be effortlessly scaled down to fit into a purse or backpack.
