Cardboard Bike Helmet

October 8th, 2010 [print] 1 comment

London’s Royal College of Art graduate, Anirudha Surabhi, has created a recyclable helmet, made mostly of corrugated cardboard, which just might hit the shelves in a few months.

It’s called the Kranium–which isn’t particularly creative, so thankfully the design makes up for it–and is reported to weigh less than a standard foam helmet, as well as have 4 times the strength.  Unfortunately, it also has at least 1.5 times the awkward mushroom-head looks of normal helmets, so hopefully he’s still working on that.
