The Hövding helmet is made by two Swedish yuccies from the university of Lund, with a tendecy to heavy geekiness. These girls asked themselves “why not make an airbag for cyclists?” and then they proceeded to make it.
The airbag works as a collar or a scarf and registers sudden movements. If an acceleration is fast enough, the collar pops out and protects the neck and the head of the wearer. Check out the crash test video below.

3) People are harvesting water from air and
Many tech fantasies focus on how we will feed the world. In some scenarios access to water is also addressed. Mimicking dessert beetles and RedWood trees, it is now possible to harvest water from the air, with a device that looks a bit like a beehive sticking out the window.
The inventor is living in the ever so foggy and ever so Yuccie San Francisco, named as one of the best yuccie cities to visit in this yuccie top 5.
Harvesting water from air seems quite futuresque, but at the end of the day, it is the most important ressource for human life – let's make clean water accessible to everyone everywhere!
2) Solar-powered airplanes
Imagine if we could fly planes around the world without polluting and emitting astronomic amounts of CO2. That would be could, right? Two Swiss entrepreneurs are currently trying to fly around the world in a solar-powered airplane.
The future is now, these guys just succeeded in the first oceanic crossing ever, in a solar-powered airplane. Today, they're in Hawaii waiting to finish the world-round journey. The batteries busted on the trip, delaying the journey until April 2016.

1) Jetpacks – yeah – jetpacks!
Since 2004 we've had the technology to make jetpacks. I know how you're feeling cheated now for not having seen one or having been offered at trip with one. But jetpacks are real. Alive and real. Two French super yuccies are flying these bad boys around Dubai.
Even though it happened in a galaxy far away and a long time ago, no yuccie has ever seised to hope for the Star Wars jetpack becoming a part of our reality. Who knows, maybe electrical cars, solar-powered airplanes and personal jetpacks are a part of the future we're all facing?
