Macross Helmet

I wonder if that's an actual full-spec motorcycle helmet? That would be awfully cool. They could include bluetooth plus headphones (hell, given how big that bastard is, you could just cram the whole phone in there!)

I wonder if the salamander phone actually farts when you squeeze it?

This is Japan. None of those actually do anything but cost money.

The helmet doesn't even look like it fits on a human head.
