"Halfdome" is a bike helmet that folds in half so you can stuff it in a backpack. Two latches on the side of the helmet allow you to detach the top dome, turn it upside down, and drop it into the bottom ring. This significantly reduces its size, which solves the storage and carrying problem that many users complain about, as well as reduce the excuse to not even wear a bike helmet at all.
