Breathe Air Helmet

July 14, 2007

 

It may look like something out of Return Of The Jedi, but this helmet could help cyclists breathe more easily, according to its designer. 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.
The helmet, called Breathe Air, was created by 22-year-old Brunel University industrial design and technology student Luke Pannell.
Mr Pannell is seeking a manufacturer to take on the Breathe Air helmet, which is expected to retail for around £100.

    Has this helmet been produced? We have two men with severe allergies trying to work in hay production.

    I think it looks awesome but can it be used as a motorcycle helmet
