  •  New-tech helmet padding (2+ / 0-)

    is what I read on 'Gizmag', this little e-newsletter a few months back. It was made for bike helmets, because it's hard to get a good fit. It's just little flexy balls, like a beanbag so it conforms to the rider's head. Fully compressed, each pushes on 12 of its neighbors, so they claim 4X the performance of foam padding. Said it won the Austrian national prize for design or something.
