Paint it silver and go trick-or-treating as a pan of Jiffy Pop.

I wonder if it flattens out if it hit from the top.

I get why a helmet is useful but in an earth quake I would be more worried about pancaking floors than falling chunks...though I guess chunks are more likely.

...but it should reduce the chances of injury from things like items falling off of shelves or other small debri
I"m going to go with "Its gonna pancake with a top blow" :mrgreen:

Looks like someone got a commission from Devo, then had to come up with an alternate use.

Or maybe a thinking cap from the 2005 H2G2 movie:

I just don't understand...

There's no warning for an earthquake, aftershocks excluded.

So what use is a helmet cuz you wont have time to don it.... Unless you wear it all the time....

Then why does it fold?

My first thought was "will that fold back into my head if hit with sufficient force?" I guess you could be a "what not to do in case of emergency" story for future generations...

Not the best looking helmet but I'm curious about its sturdiness.

I'm partly tempted to buy one (assuming it's an actual production item and not some prototype that'll never be made) and just whack the crap out of it.

Wouldn't you shake it? I meant to test it's total effectiveness? It's a earthquake safety helmet , not a whack it safety helmet

At $71 each, I think I'll have to find something else to use for my Devo costume... ;)

But you can protect both of your wives and your kids for the low, low price of $355.
