The Next Must-Have Adventure Gear? The 'Invisible' Bike Helmet
Reminiscent of the zippered collar of an athletic jacket, the scarf-like Hövding contains a folded-up "invisible" nylon hood whose trigger mechanisms are controlled by sensors that pick up on the abnormal movements of the bike rider wearing it. The sensors are charged via USB port.
I would run out and get a Hövding immediately, but there are two problems. One: it's sold only in Sweden and the United Kingdom. Two: it currently retails for around $560.
Once the price comes down for the Hövding, do you think you'd buy it to augment or replace your travel gear? Tell us in the comments!
