Giant Head-Eating Clam or New Technology In Bike Helmets? You Be The Judge


This video about a new 'invisible' bike helmet is too funny not to share. While I'm sure the product has it's merits, it looks like one of those inflatable bath pillows to me so I have a hard time taking the product serious. Plus there are these (paraphrased) lines in the video, "People wonder how girls could come up with something so technical" and "Some people said get a rooster..." (What??) that make me giggle out loud. This is my Wednesday gift to you. Enjoy.

I am the judge and I LOVE the idea. If I could be safe and not have to wear a bike helmet, then SIGN ME UP NOW! I mean, sign me up, please...

I like that it can double as a rain bonnet in case of a surprise storm.

I think it is a good idea also. I have ridden a bike 54 years and never once hit my head, so I agree if I could be safe and no bike helmet I would like that also.

I didn't realize it until I started this job but apparently a LOT of people don't like to wear helmets so I suppose anything that protects the head is a great invention for those who just aren't going to to do it because they don't like the feel or look of a helmet.
