A futuristic bike helmet with a built-in generator

Recently, I think that there are many people riding motorcycles with portable GPS navi, transceiver, etc, but the problem is securing power supply. There is no cigar socket like a car in a motorcycle, so I can not say that I can take power from there. It is hard for amateurs to mess with wiring, and it is quite difficult to get on with heavy external batteries. For two wheelsETCSince power is also necessary for the installation of, it is an important issue affecting the convenience whether to be able to secure power supply when riding a motorcycle.

So, if you have built a generator in the helmet and receive the wind coming from before, you can use various electronic devices freely? A certain designer figured out such a helmet after noticing that.

There are many technical problems such as power generation stopping when turning to the side or the back, and impossible to balance the efficiency of the generator with the manufacturing cost as it is, but there are many practical and dreamy Is not it an idea?
