The Hövding is Your Fashion Forward, Invisible Skull Protector
When cycling, you typically don’t want invisibility to be any part of your ride. However, if you have a high sense of fashion and enjoy the wind flowing through your stylish locks, you will be glad to know there’s an alternative to the traditional bicycle helmet. The Hövding is the design thesis, brought-to-life brain-child of Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin. It’s a collar worn round the neck, fit with motion sensors, microcontrollers and a unique way of wrapping your gourd in the event of an accident.
The Hövding is a zipped collar constructed of black, waterproof and dirt-resistant fabric. It comes with Shell options to coordinate your outfit or preferred crash situation. When smashing into a wall, being hit by a car or other unexpected trauma-inducing accident, the device’s motion sensors pick up the cyclist’s complex, unexpected movements, sending a signal to a airbag. This hidden head sack deploys from the collar, inflating in a tenth of a second to envelope the head and neck of the cyclist.
