What the fuck was that? Huge build up to something utterly unimpressive. That "invisible helmet" looks cumbersome, uncomfortable, and completely impractical for HOT WEATHER. Also, does it really provide the same level of impact resistance as a conventional helmet? This video wastes a shitload of time being philosophical, rather than delving into the technical details, which is what would have impressed me. But as it stands, it doesn't look like improvement over conventional helmets at all – it just looks like some other pain-in-the-ass piece of shit that a bicyclist has to wear.
What a long lead in to show a couple seconds of a head airbag. Yeah, that collar will be oh so much more comfortable than simply wearing a helmet.

I always thought it would be cool if you drove a motorcycle to wear a jump suit. You attach a lanyard to your bike if you get thrown from the bike, it blows up just like this bike helmet and turns you into the michelin man.
However, the problem is if it goes off accidentally. It probably would in short order.
I leave my helmet alone for a week, it'll still work in an instant. I leave that bulging neck-belt alone for a week, it'll probably run out of battery.
Also, it doesn't shield your head in rain (if you abandon cars, you're gonna be riding in rain from time to time). Airbags isn't gonna stop stuff from flying into your face: rain drops, bird poo, bugs, random asshat peeing from a bridge…
not invisible and not a helmet
how is that going to protect me when kids throw rocks at me head
am i going to have to fall over first
I was more put off by the 2.5 mins it took out of actual 3.25 mins of vid to stop whinging about being disrespected as an inexperienced and unappreciated female and show the dang product.
If you did an endo over the front tire most likley you are gonna smash your face into the ground this device and even a helmet wont save you there. and some guy already came up with a similar device for motorcycle except its a full body airbag worn just like clothes and is activated by g force from an accelerometer or a clip that when you fall from your bike it pulls to activate it
Oh noes I'm a hipster feminist and I can't wear a helmet coz it breaks my hairdo ! that's what I got from this vid.
i think someone may misunderstand the meaning of 'invisible'.
SWEDEN FOR THE WIN!!!
"people wonder how girls could create something this technicle" hahaha! If your helmet is uncomfortable it's the wrong size and/or not being worn correctly. I couldn't imagine wearing one of those on a 20 mile ride in 100° summer heat.
thats funny,over here in america "invisible" means it is unable to be seen. and what you call a helmet, we call airbags.
This video was at least 3 minutes too long.
People are surprised that women can be so technical? People say if you want order you need to bring in a Rooster? It's amazing that something could be imagined or produced (or borrowed from a cars airbag idea) by two women living in what appears to be the 1920's.It's 2012 ladies,you're not chained to the kitchen or constantly pregnant,act like it. On a personal sidenote: Sinking all my investment capitol in Huffy and Schwinn,since bikes seem to be the "future".
I believe you’ve made several really intriguing items. Made men and women would actually think about this the way you simply do. I’m actually pleased that will there can be much about it subject thats recently been discovered and also you achieved it very well, with a lot course. Good one you, guy! Excellent products below.
Everyone keeps saying stuff about fashion or how stupid it looks. Am I the only one who noticed, when you go back and look, they are wearing the "invisible helmets" the whole time. Nobody thought it looked goofy… Until they focused on it.
Ha! Instant pillow! Just take a running jump into bed an POW! Your an astronaut…
holy crap can any one that doubts this please go ahead and cram it for 30 seconds! this is a very intelligent, well thougt out, and overall brilliant idea! granted yes, it seems quite primitive and has some flaws but damn! its called a prototype! and if they get more funding and improve on the idea then who know what it can turn into! personally i never wear a helmet while biking/rollerblading however if this device was more applicable i would be much more likely to wear it. because i do see the advantages to a device that could SAVE MY LIFE. how about we think about the overall picture we comment some half-baked thoughts, just saying

Probably the fastest way to ruin a new belt is to ‘stretch’ a V-belt over a pulley instead of loosening the accessory designed to slip it into placetimknox This is often done by taking documents from your trash or by making contact with you and pretending to be from a legitimate organization If the cat has been pushing for quite some time without any effect, or a kitten seems to be stuck make sure you call your veterinary surgeon immediately Uniforms also represent team spirit, and this has been this way throughout, right from the days of the Roman Empire to the modern dayC If the planet can be inadequate, and not triggering evil, the actual gem stone must be encouraged
The only problem here is that you might run into a little trouble with the cops every now and then. It will look like you're not wearing a helmet after all.
