Hot new helmet from Sweden

It’s an airbag for your skull, designed for biking. Wonder how long before this is accepted for UCI/USAC events? (Never.) Here’s a video of the helmet in action!

The Hovding apparently resides in a stylish scarf-like thing that lies around the neck. They’ll supposedly be released in the spring. Not sure if they will be available in the US as I cannot read Swedish.

Found this over from some bike-commuting co-workers who sent me the link from Popular Science.
