Style Watch: Airbag collar for safe cycling

This is quite possibly the last thing I would spend $360 on!

A couple of Swedish designers Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin have designed and developed a special kind of helmet: the Hovding helmet for cycling beauties. Safe beauties, that is! Because the $360 Hovding helmet functions just like an airbag collar: it looks like a scarf but it inflates in 0,1 seconds when accelerometers and gyro – meters inside detect sudden jolt. Would you rather wear a classic, traditional helmet or the futurist Hovding? (Hovdingvia)
