If you’ve spent enough time looking up designs on the internet, you’ve seen this kind of chair somewhere. Paper is a pretty tough material when stress is applied against its thickness. If this chair can take the weight of a human body, it can take impact too, right? The Shell helmet uses a similar principle to create a lightweight, compact bicycle helmet design. The pros of this aren’t just the lightweight or semi-durable aspect, the helmet’s flexible nature ensures it actually forms itself around the contours of your skull, making it fit much more snugly. Plus, with its virtually open design, air circulation around your scalp is literally a breeze! With foldable bikes coming into our lives in the future, it only makes sense to have foldable helmets too, no?
