Ah, sexual head trauma. If we could count the IQ points lost on headboards and walls around the world, we’d probably cry. So we won’t. Anyway, today, you’re in luck — for around $460, now you can enjoy an altogether different kind of safe sex.
Introducing the HÃ¶vding, a collar developed by industrial design students in Stockholm, Sweden, to offer an alternative to the bicycle helmet. Essentially, the Chieftain is a collar that contains an airbag and sensors.
When these register motions that indicate an accident, the airbag immediately inflates into a hood around the head to prevent trauma.
Unlike a helmet, the shell of the collar can be changed so the Chieftain matches different outfits. No word yet on whether they have one in red latex.
