Swedish company Hövding has created the second-generation inflatable bike helmet for cyclists with an active motion sensors to detect impact that deploys in 0.1 seconds. The airbag quickly surrounds the area around the neck and head, offering more coverage than a traditional helmet. The helmet was first introduced in 2012, and the new version features a microUSB-rechargeable that lasts around 18 hours of cycling.

The Hövding is a nylon collar which is zipped up around your neck. Clipping the zip to an on/off sensor activates the collar, letting it measure your every movement, up to the moment you take it off. Watch the video below to learn more about the new airbag helmet.
