Star Wars-inspired Helmet Helps Cyclists

Look in your rear-view mirror and you might be startled to see an Imperial biker on your tail. Of course, it could just be the “Breathe Air” bike helmet designed by 22-year-old Brunel University industrial design and technology student Luke Pannell. Lancashire Evening Post reports:

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.
