ESO how to hide your helmet

There are a lot of cool looking bike helmets out there but if you want something that doesn't look like a helmet but keeps your head safe in an accident consider the Hovding.


It's sort of an airbag for bikes; you wear it on your neck and if you happen to fall off your bike and your head is in danger, the airbag pops up and quickly (in a tenth of a second) covers your head against impact.


It uses combination of accelerometers and gyrometers to sense if you're just riding or in an accident. 

Pros

  • Keeps your head cool
  • Deploys in a tenth of a second
  • Easier to store than a helmet

Cons

  • Technology still new
  • Probably not for places where helmet laws are strict

Conclusion:

If you don't like wearing helmets because it's hot consider the Hovding.
