Who wants to buy this Helmet?

All-weather motorcycle helmet heats and cools your face, protects grey matter (video)
By Brian Heater posted Aug 21st 2012 1:20PM

Bob Averill, who introduced us to the world of underwater hamster care, had a couple of other projects to show us during our visit to Portland, Oregon, including the All-Weather Motorcycle Helmet. What, you ask, makes a motorcycle helmet "all-weather?" Why, built-in heating and cooling, of course. Averill started with a standard Vega modular helmet, adding an evaporative cooler powered by a solar panel on top. The cooler pulls air from an intake on the helmet's side, sucking up more air at higher speeds and blowing it through a sponge, across the wearer's face. When things get too cold, there's a heater built into the liner, created from a heated mouse pad and powered by a lithium battery. Averill is looking to get the project mass-produced, but that's easier said than done, when it comes to a safety products like this -- and Kickstarter, apparently, isn't playing ball.

The cooling would be pretty cool. But when I've ridden in the cold, I haven't had a problem with my head freezing. As long as it's a full face helmet, it keeps me plenty warm

helmets are freakin deathtraps cus they restrict your peripheral vision. especially if you are doing some serious riding!

not a lot of grey matter to protect around here anyway

What in the hell was that on his hand?

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Weird! I wouldn't mind the cooling part though, especially when stuck in traffic.
