Party NYC's Latest Invention Puts Your Offspring in Charge

Party is one of a new breed of creative agencies/labs that doesn't just help brands, but creates its own products too. The latest offering from the Japanese agency's New York offshoot is the "Piggyback Helmet." Equipped with handlebars, LED turn signals and even a horn, it lets kids "drive" their parents around. The faster you go, the faster the LED lights on the side will pulse, and vibrations in the helmet will tell Mama or Papa which direction they should turn.

Anyone who's ever let a little kid push a shopping cart knows how popular that's going to be.

A prototype of the helmet, test-driven in this film by Here Be Dragons ECD Edu Pou and his son, went on show at the New York Maker Faire this weekend, along with other Party creations like this Disco Dog jacket, at the New York Hall of Science.

This would be an awesome accessory for any moms or dads wanting to dress as a motorcycle for their mini Evel Knievels this Halloween, but unfortunately, it's not available for wide release . . . yet.
