Motorcycle Helmet of the Apocalypse

I shot these photos of my office mate and fellow artist Josh Jay, who sculpted and detailed this amazing replica helmet from the post-apocalyptic video game Fallout 3. I think this would be ideal for cold-weather riding, don't you? It even comes with headlights. So, why can't we get helmets designed like these for riding motorcycles??

...and don't say because they're not safe due to limited visibility, odd angles or something else ridiculously practical.

Update: Here are the photos of Josh's process from Pepakura model to finished helmet:

Also, if you're looking for more geek-inspired head protection (from Tatooine sandstorms for example), check out this Tosche Station Trucker hat from TK409.com for $20 shipped.

  11. Wearing a helmet while participating in activities like bicycle riding or motorcycle riding can drastically lessen the chance of suffering a serious brain injury. All too often, people taking part in these activities are seriously injured because they chose not to wear a helmet see this here.
