If you're one of those smart individuals who makes sure to wear all the necessary safety gear before heading out on your bike, then you may want to consider adding the odor-emitting helmet to your collection. With the capability of emitting a foul odor when damaged, this piece is definitely one to look out for.

Developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM, the odor-emitting helmet features technologies that could be used in a number of other areas as well. According to PSFK, it "contains polymer materials constructed with micro-capsules of odoriferous oils which burst when damaged."
