Lego helmet reads comics for you

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on April 25th, 2011

Do you love comics, but don’t particularly want to flex the brain muscles required to actually read them? Then suit up spaceman, because this helmet is for you. Jonathan Robson has designed this Lego minifigure-inspired helmet, just for you.

The helmet has volume control and even a page skipping button on the side. On the back, there’s even a port for plugging in a USB flash drive loaded with audio content. Sadly the helmet is designed just for kids, but if you have a tiny head then go for it.

Tron Motorcycle Helmet

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on December 2nd, 2010

You may not find any light cycles on the open road, but you can at least look like you are from the Tron movie with this helmet. This Tron decal Motorcycle helmet mimics the design of the original Tron lightcycle suit.

It was designed by French firm Ruby who have tried to replicate the look and layout of the circuits on the original helmet from the film. Its a limited edition created to celebrate the release of the Tron film in France. It will be released and available to purchase in January when the Tron film hits France.

Posted in Camcorders by Conner Flynn on June 10th, 2010

Drift Innovation’s HD170 is an attractive helmet cam. It boasts a tiny 1.5-inch color LCD and built-in speaker. An adjustable lens should give you more freedom in how you attach it, too. Priced at $329, it’s a good deal with the other specs.

Like 30fps, H.264 compression, 5 megapixel stills, 1110 mAh battery, up to 32GB SDHC card. If you’re looking for a helmet cam for your crazy stunts, this one is worth a serious look.

Reevu MSX1 helmet with built-in rear-view system

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on April 25th, 2010

Reevu has improved their MSX1 helmet and at least one of them has landed in a reviewer’s hands, or head. The helmet uses a mechanical mechanism instead of rear-view cameras. According to webBikeworld, it functions just like a car’s rear-view mirror, with the small mirror in front resting just outside the rider’s line of sight.

They also say that the helmet is “built like a tank,”. The rear-view system is just icing on the cake of an otherwise already superb helmet. Needless to say, this could save some lives.

Steampunk Stormtrooper helmet

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2010

Had Luke worn this helmet when rescuing Princess Leia she would have said, “Aren’t you a little Steampunk to be a Stormtrooper?” It would have been a whole different movie had the Stormtroopers looked like this.

This Steampunk Stormtrooper Helmet is just plain awesome and menacing in a whole different way from the usual sterile white. That top area makes it look as if the Empire has been swapping some brains between troopers too.

ThermaHelm helmet cools the brain, could save lives

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2010

Here’s one we hope performs as well as they say. The ThermaHelm helmet could be a life saver for many. It boasts a few lightweight chemical packs built into the helmets lining. One of the packs has water and the other one nitrate. Together, in a sudden reaction, they cause a cooling reaction that can last up to 45 minutes.

That is important because it helps improve the chances of the rider’s survival after a crash, as it stabilizes the temperature of the brain. The ThermaHelm is expected to arrive in July of this year with GPS, a video camera and Bluetooth. We hope this one saves many lives.

Darth Vader Gas Mask

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on January 15th, 2009

Darth Vader Gas MaskIf Anakin Skywalker had lived during WWII, this is very probably what his helmet would have looked like. You can easily see a gas-masked Vader carrying out Hitler’s orders. It was made for The Vader Project, which features custom Darth Vader helmets, by Tristan Eaton and AZK ONE. Behold the Darth Vader Gas Mask! You can almost hear the familiar breathing as he breaths in clean filtered air.

The Vader Project is curated by Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys. Kelemer and Marks gathered up almost 100 underground and surrealist painters, artists , and designers to participate. Each artist was given a 1:1 scale authentic prop replica of the actual Darth Vader helmet used in the films. Each artist was free to paint, design, mash up, and customize the helmet.

HTX Helmet lets you feel headshots, makes you stupid

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2008

HTX Helmet lets you feel headshots, makes you stupidAre video games just not real enough for you? Do you wish that you could feel those headshots actually hit your head? The TN Games HTX Helmet will let you feel those kicks/bullets to the head, batting your head this way and that when it gets shot. You’ll also feel the bullets whizzing all around you. Chances are good that at some point, after one too many hits, you’ll be a drooling vegetable wearing a nerd helmet, but hey it was fun.

Feeling bullets hit my head isn’t my idea of fun, but I guess I’m just not that hardcore about it. It’s all about the thinning of the herd I guess. Natural selection and all that. I guess after they invent a jockstrap that simulates a good kick to the balls, I’ll be nearly all alone in this world, since the buyers of these things won’t be reproducing. But what do I know?

NASCAR Helmet with Radio and CD Player

Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on November 13th, 2008

NASCAR Helmet with Radio and CD PlayerIt’s like somebody decapitated a Nascar robot for your musical enjoyment. While I’m not a big fan of watching cars go around in circles all day myself, while hearing phrases like “y’all” and “get her done” and the like, this makes me actually want to see a robot Nascar driver. There’s just something cool about LED’s under a helmet and a CD tray mouth branded with my favorite home renovation store.

It’s an AM/FM radio and CD player helmet, designed like the one Tony Stewart wears when driving his #20 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing. Comes with a remote control. It would also double as a nice psycho trophy for the unbalanced Nascar fan who hasn’t managed to get close enough to bring home a head of their own for their desk. It will cost you $140 from Wal-Mart. Just where you might expect to get a gem like this.

I dare say, that’s a jolly good steampunk space helmet

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on November 10th, 2008

steampunk space helmetIf Arthur Conan Doyle, Jules Verne and the like had had the opportunity to explore space, their gear might have looked something like this. Herr Döktor’s Vacuum Survival System, or ‘Space Helmet’ was apparently recently recovered from the archive at “Castle d’Arrogance”. There aren’t a ton of details, but from what I gather, it’s fully functional should you wish to leave Victorian England and explore space.

Some specs include a blown glass pressure bell, cast-iron body with brass and copper fittings, and externally mounted lamp. The chest mounted control box shows the temperature as well as illuminated internal and external pressure gauges. It’s a true work of art so awesome that it will grab you by the handlebar mustache and take you for a ride.


Trace Audio Helmet with speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on October 8th, 2008

Trace Audio Helmet with speakersIf you’re in the market for a helmet that will protect your head while pumping out the tunes, the R.E.D. Protection Trace Audio Helmet features DJ-quality low profile-speakers. It can connect to your iPod or other Mp3 player.

The helmet itself features an injected ABS shell, removable Goggle Clip, removable Goggle Gasket, and front vent plugs. And it’s not stylish at all for $90, though it does come in black or white. Hopefully having speakers in your helmet won’t distract you enough to land you in the hospital, but if does at least you’ll have tunes while waiting on the ambulance.

Nerd Hellraiser brain-computer interface

Nerd Hellraiser brain-computer interface
Some German scientists with a love of bad horror movies and some time on their hands, have come up with the nerdiest brain-computer interface yet. It’s from the Technical University of Braunschweig.

No placing electrodes on your head with this one. This one is all about wearing a large metal helmet full of sensors, that can detect your brain activity through your hair. They claim that the system is good enough to control an RC car and they’re hoping to use it in wheelchairs and prosthetics. Check out a video below.
