Invisible Bike Helmet

From a video at the Spiegel website, unfortunately only in German.
The subtitle is: "Innovation for vain people" and I am not sure if I would agree. In any case I do not think that this system would solve the (non-safety) related issues of wearing a helmet, being a) comfort and b) weight. Heat insulation on top of the head is replaced by even better heat insulation of the neck, not exactly recommendable for hot summer rides. And the system itself doesn't look to be lighter that a modern bike helmet.
I guess I stay with my Giro Atmos for the time being, at least, until an orange version is released. For vain guys like me.
