The prototype designs by Dubai-based creative Jyo John Mullor gives the illusion of different people’s shaved heads integrated into the structure of the helmet. The 30-year-old hopes his project ‘Human Helmet’ will become a reality on protective gear next February. Metro chatted to Mulloor on the bike accessories that’ll be sure to freak out every motorist.
Q: Why did you design such creepy helmets?
Q: Why are your helmets “shaved”?
– It’s made just for visualization purpose; this is the initial stage of a concept. Obviously, there will be ones with other hairstyles on production as per the consumer orders.
Q: Do you really think somebody would be keen to wear one?
– Yes, my project has received many messages of appreciation from around the globe. Some manufacturers have already shown interest in launching the line of helmets. I hope to see them to be moving across the streets very soon.
Q: Do you anticipate any problems with traffic police?
– We are changing the cover design now to look more like second skin. But I believe it won’t cause any problems with law enforcement officers. You will just have to take the “second head” off to show that it’s just a helmet. [Laughs]
