The Invisible Bike Helmet by Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin

The Invisible Bike Helmet by Anna Haupt, Terese Alstin
Believe it or not Anna Haupt is wearing an invisible helmet in the above image. I know what you’re thinking and the answer is no, it’s not hidden in that touque she’s wearing.

They were told it couldn’t be done. The end of this video gave me chills.

Do you guys think these skeuomorphs will always exist? In another 100 years will our cell phones still mimic the sound of a camera shutter when we take a photo?

Love to hear your thoughts below!
