Unusual Inventions - The Invisible Bicycle helmet

Startacus RSS

by Startacus Admin

We do love the extraordinary here at Startacus. So when we first heard of the Invisable Bicycle Helmet we have to admit we were rather blown away. 

So the Invisable Bicycle Helment then?

Yep, we know this one is hard to believe and if we’re being honest, it was only until the last 20 seconds of their promo video that I truly believed that this wasn’t a very early April Fool’s!

However, if you get past the idea that an invisible helmet, must equate to some sort of Star Trek fashioned cloaking device, the reality is that inventors Anna Haupt and Terese after five years of invisible bicycle helmetresearch and $10 million in funding,have come up with a rather cool way of providing a solution to the “bicycle helmets ain’t cool” problem, that results in copious amounts of road deaths every year.

We don’t want tell you what they designed - ‘cause we want you to watch their video! However, bearing in mind that this project started as a Masters’ thesis, for both Anna and Terese, we think that after 5 years of research and development, these guys are potentially about to forever change the ‘helmet’ wearing cycle community.

The only issue is currently cost, but like all new technology, expect for the price to drop somewhat over the next few years..

It is proof that you don’t need to necessarily invent a new product full-stop. Many inventions and ideas are just simply about making a current solution to a problem a lot better and we wish Anna and Tesese all the best on their continued journey (sorry)...

Of course, if you have a fab idea, project or startup, we would also love you to showcase you big or small plans in our fab Collaboration space. Go check it out, we love it!
