Star Wars helmet for cyclists

Breathe Air helmet

This Breathe Air helmet looks like it came straight from a Star Wars movie.

According to 22-year-old Brunel University industrial design and technology student Luke Pannell it’s not just a cool looking helmet.

From the Lancashire Evening Post:

The helmet was created to filter out particles which irritate hay fever and asthma sufferers. It covers the cyclist’s nose and mouth with a shield behind which the filtered air circulates. Used air is expelled via a plastic tube when the cyclist exhales.

Stephen Green, lecturer at Brunel University’s school of engineering and design, said: “Combining a helmet with effective filtering will provide considerably more reassurance to people whilst cycling.”

Luke is looking for a manufacturer to produce Breathe Air helmet, which is expected to retail for around 100 pounds.

Ad Dugdale from Gizmodo writes:

Sound quality isn’t great and the 4.7-inch droid connects via a 3.5-mm audio cable (USB connection is, as yet, unconfirmed). Each speaker costs $20 (so order two if you want a pair) and it comes in red or blue

These 12cm tall models can now be preordered from National Console Suppurt Inc.
