The Piggyback Driver Helmet Turns Parents into Vehicles

 |  |  |  |  October 5, 2016

If you’re a parent with a young child, you know all about piggyback rides. Well they are about to get much cooler for your kid. The Piggyback Driver lets kids drive their parents like an actual vehicle.

The helmet is a full of little details that will make piggyback rides more fun than ever. It has a handlebar for your little one to hold onto, and when they turn the handlebars, the LEDs on the sides will blink and act as a turn signal, while the helmet lightly vibrates, so the slave, I mean the parent knows which way to go. It also has a Boost Button that emits light and sound, and a honk button just to aggravate dear old Dad. The LEDs even flash in time with parents’ speed.

You better hope your kid doesn’t make a lot of sharp turns, otherwise a strong kid might snap your neck. Just kidding. It’s safe. Creative lab PARTY New York has a working prototype of the helmet already, and now they are looking for partners to help it create a production model.
