To make this possible, Mooji figured out a method for growing algae naturally, in salt water. Next, Mans built the frame / springs using wood, while cork was turned into dampeners, and then hemp for reinforcement. "Five years ago, I decided that for me, designing meant following my intuition. Instead of simulating my way through the design process," said Mans on his organic approach in designing this bike. Click here for the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Modern motorcycle elmets are constructed from an inner EPS "Expanded Polystyrene foam" and an outer shell to protect the EPS. The density and the thickness of the EPS is designed to cushion or crush on impact to help prevent head injuries. They are generally designed to distort in a crash (thus expending the energy otherwise destined for the wearer's skull), so they provide little protection at the site of their first impact, but continued protection over the remainder of the helmet. Continue reading for more examples showing why you should always wear a helmet.
