Hexr creates your one-of-a-kind helmet from a 250,000-point scan of your head

Hexr Cycling Helmet Hexr’s intuitive iPhone app takes a 250,000-point scan of your head – just ask a friend to circle around you with your phone’s camera, click submit and the data is instantly sent to the company, ready for 3D printing. Three to four weeks later, your one-of-a-kind helmet, complete with custom text and image engraving, will arrive. Its protective inner is made from a honeycomb structure, which is not only efficient at absorbing energy – more so than the foam found in most helmets – but is also very breathable. £299, hexr.com
