The 'Invisible Bike Helmet' Does the Impossible

The Invisible Bike Helmet is a new product that will surely revolutionalize the biking industry.

A team of girls from Sweden named Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin have developed a helmet that you do not need to wear on your head. Instead, you wear it around your neck like a scarf. When faced with a collision or an accident, the invisible helmet will activate and inflate like an airbag, thus protecting you as it engulfs your head.

The two girls started out working on this as an exam project for school, and it has since turned into seven years of research with $10 million of venture capital. The two of them were told it could not be done, that helmets were meant to be uncomfortable and bulky, but just wait until the end of the video to see just how possible the impossible really is.
