A Foldable Bike Helmet You'll Just Happen To Have In Your Bag | NPR

This is a bike helmet made for people who think bike helmets are a pain to carry around.
English inventor Jeff Woolf came up with the idea of the first fold-flat bike helmet after noticing that many cyclists using European bike shares were going helmetless. He discovered that most who shunned helmets did so because they said they were too bulky to be conveniently stowed between rides.

Certain a helmet had helped protect his head in a bike crash, Woolf wondered if there was a way to inspire more helmet wearing. "If I could invent a helmet that could fold flat, then I might save lives," Woolf said in an Indiegogo campaign for the helmet, called Morpher.
