In spite of the danger of getting a severe traumatic brain injury, a ski lovers prefer to wear ordinary wool caps instead of helmets.

Headpiece A1 developed by experts and students of the Australian Queensland University of technology, solves this dilemma. Soft cap from the inside on 70-90% Merino wool and top – of durable, moisture-absorbing and non-allergenic acrylic that is durable and resistant to washing.

Between these layers is a mixture of so-called non-Newtonian fluids consisting of particles that are in a relaxed state quietly moved relative to each other and instantly engage (harden) with a sharp mechanical impact.

The creators of unusual skiing hats are going January 14 to put A1 on Kickstarter, where anyone can buy it for 116$. In the future the developers plan to use its technology in producing protective equipment for extreme sports enthusiasts.
