New Soft Helmet Turns Hard in Crash

Not for bikers at the moment from the looks of it, but a cool idea at least.

That is pretty cool.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

very cool. If its nice a squishy, it could lead to a revolution in helmet fit. As you pulled it on, it could form to your head and still absorb impact in a collision.

is it delicious like the chocolate that hardens upon impacting on my ice cream?
