An airbag for your head

As we can see with the myriad designs of recumbents, the human capacity for ingenuity is limitless. So it should not come as a shock that somebody has designed a cycling airbag as a helmet replacement. Here's some video...

This helmet could actually be a danger on a recumbent if it were to inflate unexpectedly. The bag bursts out from the back of the neck which, on a recumbent, would be up against a seat. The head would then be violently propelled forward.

Maybe helmets aren't so bad after all.
