The Invisible Bicycle Helmet

This video is about bicycles, but I don't see any reason why it can't be applied to motorcycles. It's pretty interesting:

Why do you say that?

First off, the 10 million dollars isn't just for R&D; it's funding to get the company to the point where they can offer a consumer product for sale.

Second, isn't the ideal to be able to ride with the wind in your hair and still have the protection of a helmet?

It's a great idea, just have to wait and see if it passes all the regulations that's needed.

Good concept, only an extension of airbag technology.
MotoGP riders have airbags in their race suits and this looks like the same concept. Even the arming mechanism looks the same.
