This Invisible Bicycle Helmet Will Completely Change Road Safety
Feb 23, 2015
In 2005, Swedish industrial design students Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin had an ingenious idea for invisible protection while riding a bike. Seven years after developing such an innovative product, Haupt and Alstin are now selling what they've named Hövding and planning to expand sales to all of Europe.
Every year there are over 100 million bicycles produced worldwide, compared to the 42 million cars made. In many places, there are laws regarding cyclists and their safety, such as those pertaining to helmet usage. Bike helmets reduce head injuries by 85 percent, which is why these two students decided to make them more appealing to wear.
