Hovding-airbag-bike-invisible-helmetBike Helmets are not the best fashion statements. Usually it covers your head and you end up looking like a nerd. Imagine having a helmet that actually is not visible at all. An invisible helmet but works just like a helmet.

Its called Hövding, a design comes from Swedes Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin. Hövding once its deployed, covering your melon after popping up like a car's airbag. Just below is how you'll look the rest of the time, with the inflatable helmet stored away in a special collar.

The Hövding took seven years and $10 million to bring from concept to product, but unlike most things that are invisible, it's finally out there for purchase: you can buy a Hövding for about 4,000 Swedish kronor which equates to just under $600 USD.

Hovding comes in two colors right now. One is black and the other one is in some sort of floral prints.
