  2. Looks similar to the shock sensor you see used on Mythbusters all the time.

    The ones they use are designed to monitor frieght and they trigger if the item gets dropped or bounced too much.

  3. Or you could use the ATC9K HD POV Camera which aparently has a G-meter and attach this to your helmet. Not only can you brag about the Gs achieved but also show us a videographic evidence of your adventures (in a safe and controlled environment of course).

  4. I may be way off here, but wouldn't they need to be stuck to the head to get the force of the impact that the head takes. Since if it was on the outside it's just what the shell has taken.

  5. If you do want to do a proper test you would want to put a sensor on your head and on the helmet. This way you could measure the difference and how much the helmet absorbs and how much it transmitts to your head.
