I just found out that the Hövding invisible bike helmet has gone into production and is now for sale. I saw a video about this idea a while back and thought it looked pretty interesting. It's quite expensive — £300 — and also it uses electricity, so it's not obviously better than a conventional bike helmet. I'm not a cyclist so I can't evaluate it further than that, but it's certainly interesting.

If you're a cyclist reading this, I'd love to know what you think.

When I was cycling, I didn't wear a helmet because I found the extra weight made me lock my head forwards instead of constantly flicking from side to side and looking over shoulders, and I judged the extra awareness to make me safer than the helmet; so this device might be the best of both worlds for someone in that situation.

It is possible that it might for some people, but perhaps not the same subset as have that problem with helmets.
