Ralph Effelburger' s new invention, the Airmet, ran into serious trouble at the Motor Cycle Show Exhibition held in the Birmingham Conference Centre yesterday .
Effelburger' s 'air bag' helmet demonstration ended in complete chaos when three of the sexy models demonstrating the life saving device each managed to inflate their helmet air bags unintentionally.
The inventor has spent the last ten years of his life fine tuning the workings of his motorcycle helmet invention which he claimed would end accident blunt force trauma forever.
Made up of sixteen additional cells on the helmet, the helmet is triggered to prime itself if the rider accidentally leaves the bike, thus inflating mini air bags and giving maximum protection to the noggin. The helmet' s defect seems to be in the string and pin arming device which triggers when forceful pressure is put on the string and it separates from the device.
Angela was the first model to accidentally inflate her head when she simply fell off a stationary motorcycle. Tina was next when an annoying Hell' s Angel deliberately pulled her chord while she was writhing provocatively on a power bike's seat. Last but not least was poor Caroline whose Airmet helmet exploded without reason leaving her with a nasty case of tinnitus and a blackened face.
Ralph left the Exhibition Centre in a cloud of smoke yesterday and organisers swear they will never have him back for another. Caroline was interviewed by a Local Birmingham TV network but was unable to answer any questions on account of her temporary deafness.
