Posted in : Amazing

(added few years ago!)

Say goodbye to flimsy plastic and chin-straps, and hello to the head protection of the future! The innovative Hövding is a safer, high-tech alternative to conventional bicycle helmets. This Swedish, collar-like apparatus deploys a protective gas-inflated airbag hood when internal accelerometers and gyroscopes detect irregular movements in a bicycling accident.

Hövding fully engages in a tenth of a second, and the collar's fabric is waterproof. The gas-inflator is battery powered (via USB), featured with 6 LED lights that signify available battery power. This incredible device is also fashionable. The collar features an external cloth shell that can be personalized and interchanged to match your look. Currently, Hövding is available with two sleek shell styles.
