New nanotube sheets combine unique properties.
Temperature sensing is just the latest helmet technology.
Hothead Technologies has developed a system that can sense and warn a user of heatstroke. In this video, an RFID transmitter is fitted in a headband and a white temperature-sensing patch touches the wearer's forehead. Readings are beamed to a PDA (not shown). When the wearer's temperature hits 102.5 and stays there for 20 seconds, an alarm sounds on the PDA.
The "aero-auto hybrid" made its flight debut on an airstrip in New York.
