FORCE

NFL HELMET

ABSTRACT
MY ROLE
FORCE is designed to reduce the impact risk and increase the safety of the NFL players by using emerging materials and finishes with improvising technology.
 
It is a two shell helmet which is connected by the expansion joints between the shells. The inner shell is layered by D3O so that it attaches to the head and the outer shell moves when under impact. The impact is determined when the pizochromatic paint changes the color based on the force applied to the helmet's outer shell.

FORCE is designed in 5 weeks. My role was to conduct a market research to analyze existing competitors. User observations and review analysis helped in deducting to five design criteria. CMF research for understanding emerging materials in the market. My

key role was to design the final concept in SolidWorks and KeyShot.
