The Hövding is an airbag for your head. Hövding means “chieftain” in Swedish, and the air-helmet was designed by Swedes Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin as a university thesis project. The Hövding collar contains gyroscopes and accelerometers which constantly monitor your movements, releasing the airbag hidden within only when you’re in danger. Watch the video of the airbag collar in action!
