Holy Invisible Helmet, Batman!

I don't go on hiatus on purpose; it just happens. But I am breaking the hiatus (and then I'll get right back to it, I promise you), to spread word of a magnificent invention: the invisible bicycle helmet.

I read this article on Yahoo! and watched the video that came with it and am in awe. Spoiler alert: It's technology that already exists but never in such a personal form. Think airbags and self-inflating life rafts. Brilliant!

The video tells a brief story of how two Swedish women, Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin, brought their idea to life and brings to my mind the adjectives revolutionary, inspiring, visionary. And, probably awesome, too. My favorite quote in video comes from Alstin: "Cars are so yesterday. Bikes are the future."
