No matter what the law dictates in your particular state, not wearing a helmet while riding is one of the dumbest things you can do. That doesn’t mean lugging around a bulky dome guard is any fun for commuters. The Overade aims to make riding slightly more convenient and just as safe. Designed in France at Agence 360 by Patrick Jouffret in collaboration with engineer Philippe Arrouart, the first prototype was developed for the folding helmet back in 2010. Now the concept is finally scheduled to go into production later this year. Details around its exact specs are slim, but the helmet will offer the same level of protection as the non-transforming variety and fold small enough to fit into backpack or purse. Optimus Prime is officially jealous.
