We can’t all sit inside all day doing nothing by surfing the Internet and reading comic books. Sometimes we need to get outside and get some much needed exercise. That doesn’t mean we can’t go outside in fan boy and fan girl style when we hit the slopes.

For a mere $99.95, you can outfit your snowboarder with an awesome looking R2-D2 crash helmet.   I know nothing about snowboarding, skiing, or sledding – but oddly I know a lot about sliding my car into the ditch during a major ice storm, so I know all about head safety, and this helmet looks like it should keep your melon safe no matter what kind of winter activities your friends might partake in.
