In case you missed it, this Bieber-y Playmobil hair bike helmet has been riling people up on the internet for a few days. Yes, it's real. No it's not functional. Yes it's awesome. No you can't buy one. Yes it's Playmobil, not LEGO, you insensitive monsters.

The concept was developed last year by Danish design group MOEF. It was created as a prototype for a kid-friendly helmet, idea being to harness a quirky style that could trick youthful riders into finding helmets a bit more "cool", and help lower the surprising amount of head injuries sustained by biking kids annually.
The team began by digitally scanning real Playmobil character hair, adjusted it for 3D printing, and created a noggin-scale printed model complete with color matched hair color.

The project appears to still be pending on proof of kid-interest, but based on the howls of disappointed thirst from adults on the internet they should get this thing rolling ASAP.
