oh yeah, that'll be fine in a headwind or crosswind--but it does look pretty cool from a design perspective. Wacky bonkers, but still cool.

Ouch!! Don't know if this was a serious product development or a poke at the Chinese government forcing most of the population to live like homeless people. In North America a fast-food hamburger has about that same level of protection.

I suspect it was a design student project, whatever it is, I'm impressed by whoever did it, goofy or not.

Thanks btw for putting the vid up.
