    Reminds me of old Christmas decorations we had in the 70's and 80's ;)

    If it was the best helmet ever, I wouldn't wear one for a thousand pounds, not even at night.

    Did it pass any of the relevant helmet standards?

    I presume the application for the award was filed in April.

    Pro-helmet or Anti-helmet arguments aside, I do wonder if that has passed any safety tests before getting the award. It's not mentioned in the article. I can't see how that design would crumple to absorb any shock. Maybe James Dyson knows better than me though.

    I can see why it might be considered a good design though if you want to wear a helmet and it meets the standards of current helmets.
