This invisible helmet has crossed my path a few times over the last couple months. Am I for it or against it? I normally don't wear a helmet because I believe that safety truly comes in numbers and not what you choose to put on your head. I also believe that North American cyclists deserve a safer bike infrastructure, more than we need a new and improved head device. Seriously speaking, the onus should be on lawmakers and planners to build better bikeways for everyone, from child to senior citizen, in every neighborhood.
I do, however, appreciate the Swedish attitude: "Cars are so yesterday. Bikes are the future."
What do you think of the invisible helmet?
