If you don’t want professional football to morph into a high-speed game of two-hand touch, you better hope someone provides a realistic solution to the current concussion issue. That means looking at the potential of a smarter helmet—something like the Zero1 from Vicis. Designed by engineers and neurosurgeons, the Zero1 acts like a car bumper, locally deforming to absorb impact. Not only will the Zero1 helmet come in 12 different sizes to allow players a proper fit, but the unique dimensions take into consideration the anatomy of the human head. Will it solve all concussion-related issues? Probably not, but it’s a good start if you want football to remain the violent sport it is.
