Students from Northeastern University have created a new helmet for skiers that not only protects their heads but also monitors possible head injuries. The helmet, called the Head Impact Detection and Alert System, is lined with sensors that measure acceleration, and an accompanying LCD screen displays different colors based on the severity of the impact due to an accident, which would alert the responders.
