What if we bicyclists had airbags, too?
No, the above image is not the latest in experimental fashion, it’s a new, lifesaving innovation for cyclists created by a group of Swedish students: an airbag for bicyclists. Worn around the neck like a scarf, the airbag inflates with helium at the sign of a collision. Called the Hövding, this protoype is the fruit of 6 years of study. Although not yet commercialized, the tests conducted with dummies are
very promising (see below video) and one of the creators thinks that this innovative airbag will be available for some 250 euros (not bad)!
