Coconut shells could save your life
I was forwarded this article this morning. It’s in Vietnamese, but the gist is that a company in Vietnam has started producing motorbike helmets from coconut shells.
The company says they can withstand an 800kg impact, whatever that means.
They look groovy too.
Having seen the low level of helmet wearing in both Laos and Vietnam last year I’m all for it – but only if they actually work.
