Holding invisible cycle helmet by Hovding

The holding provides head protection for cyclists. A collar worn around the neck contains a folded air bag that is activated only if an accident occurs. When inflated, the air bag takes the form of a hood, surrounding and protecting the cyclists head. The product was made from a survey that investigated why people don't wear helmets, the design deals with the reality that some will still put appearance before safety. 

Air bags are a classic example of origami in everyday products. The air bag has to be folded in such a way that it can inflate efficiently and effectively.
