You can now buy a new brand of bike gear: These motorcycle helmets look like shaved human heads. I want to be surprised by this fact, but earlier this year I learned that people were selling testicle bike lights, so nothing surprises me anymore, if we're being honest. I've never ridden on a motorcycle, so I have no authority to say whether this new staple is badass or completely ridiculous. I'll let you all make that call for yourselves and just try my very best not to sway you. (Whether or not it's ~fashionable~, it is supposed to be very comfortable and safe.)
Creator Jyo John-Mulloor currently lives in Dubai, but is originally from the south Indian state of Kerala. He says, "All my life I have always been a passionate motorcyclist. I love everything about motorbiking but the helmets. The most uncomfortable gear you could ever wear."
John-Mulloor's "Project: Human Helmet" came into being because he was simply so sick of thick, clunky helmets. On his project, John-Mulloor says,
"Imagine a protective gear that’s so comfortable that you feel you never wore one. To top that, what if the helmet actually looked like your own head. Yes! A totally customizable helmet where you could have an image of your won head printed on it."
