I found this cardboard helmet interesting (BBC Future)

"Industrial designer Anirudha Surabhi has created the new, super-strong Kranium bike helmet, which protect cyclists’ heads by mimicking features of the woodpecker’s distinctive anatomy."

[...]

"According to laboratory tests, the Kranium liner absorbs three times as much force as polystyrene helmets, and, because 90% of the liner is air, it’s also 15% lighter."

[...]

"The first helmets, he says, will be available for purchase in the UK and Japan in mid-January."

Sure enough...
