This bike helmet inflates around your head like an airbag in a crash

Hövding is a bike helmet that opens up like an airbag during a collision or a fall. The airbag is designed to fit like a hood and it fills up with helium when needed.

Testing showed it reduced the chances of a head injury from 90% to 2% when travelling at speeds of 25mph.
