Ohhh kay?  And besides “sounding really gross” how does that help us?  Watch the video my friends.  After I saw it I must say I like the idea… but couldn’t you just coat your helmet with teflon?  Maybe I don’t fully understand the mechanics behind it, but if it makes riding safer?  I LOVE IT!

For a bit more info check out the title link to Scooter-Station.  You can also check out the Lazer Helmet site or watch this video on their production facility.  One problem, it looks like Brazil is the closest distributor we’ve got.  :(

    To be honest, I never thought of my scalp as an ablative coating for preventing spinal cord injuries.

    Marketing hype. The rotational dynamics of a helmet with a head in it that is attached to a body are entirely different than the helmet alone. The inertia of your head/body are way more than enough to overcome the slight drag it encounters when hitting the pavement.

    What Tim said: Not a demonstration of physical propensity, and hardly a demonstration of `safer`. Hyper-rotation is a function of mass and velocity, not the skiddyness of the bonedome.

    Lazer can have that new technical word, we shan’t be needing it.
