An airbag… for cyclists!

There’s a new sort of cycling helmet called the Hövding. It’s basically an airbag for cyclists. You wear a trendy looking and slightly thick scarf, and then if you fall off your bike or get hit by a vehicle your head is immediately covered by a protective airbag-like balloon. Would this “helmet” be approved by the Australian regulators? Hopefully.

A short documentary about the making of Hövding is here.
