Madillo / Helmet concept for scooter sharing

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2019

E-Scooter sharing carries advantages for people who want to travel faster, more flexible and eco-friendly than before. But the main issue for customers is the helmet. Helmets available on the market currently are in fixed sizes, which means there will always be someone who cannot find a helmet that fits him or her.
Madillo is a helmet that automatically adapts to your head. To increase the attention towards you it additionally emits lights to emphasize your actions. When the users are injured in an accident, the helmet automatically calls the ambulance and transmits your location. It's all about your safety and the helmet is not a necessary evil anymore but a fashion statement.

I am very proud of my work and glad that it is appreciated and supported by the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2019.
