CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A helmet (lOA), comprising:

- a sprinkler (16), for sprinkling a substance (18);

- a motor (52), for rotating said sprinkler (16) to aim it towards a first person (52A);

- a controller (28), for operating said motor (52) and said sprinkler (16), for sprinkling said substance (18) towards said first person (52A); and

- a transparent cover (64), for protecting a user (12) wearing said helmet (lOA) from receiving said substance (18),

thereby protecting said user (12) from said first detected person (52 A).

2. A helmet (lOA) according to claim 1, further comprising:

- at least one proximity detector (20A), for detecting said first person (52A) disposed at a first distance (54A) regarded proximate to said helmet (lOA),

thereby providing data to said controller (28) to operate said motor (52) and said sprinkler (16).

3. A helmet (lOA) according to claim 2, further comprising:

- a warning device (22), for warning (34) prior to said sprinkling once said at least one proximity detector (20A) detects a second person (52A) at a second distance (54B) being larger than said first distance (54A).

4. A helmet (lOA) according to claim 2, wherein said controller (28) is characterized to determine from said at least one proximity detector (20A), a direction of said first person

(52A).

5. A helmet (lOA) according to claim 2, further comprising:

- a sensor (24), for sensing that said first person (52A) detected as proximate, is of another helmet (10B), for canceling said protecting of said user (12) from said first detected person (52A).

6. A helmet (lOA) according to claim 1, further comprising:

- a manually operated device (40), for instructing (42) said controller (28) to operate said motor (52) and said sprinkler (16).

7. A helmet (10A) according to claim 6, wherein said manually operated device (40) is fixed to a gun (36), thereby aiming of said gun (36) aims said sprinkler (16).

TITLE

HELMET

TECHNICAL FIELD

The invention relates to the field of helmets for cops. More particularly, the invention relates to a cop's helmet for demonstrations.

BACKGROUND

There is a long felt need to protect a cop during a demonstration.

SUMMARY

A helmet, including proximity detectors! and a sprinkler (16), for sprinkling.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

Fig. 1 depicts a helmet according to one embodiment of the invention.

Fig. 2 is an exemplary top view of two helmets of Fig. 1, each worn by a user, and two persons, treated by the users. Fig. 3 is a top view of a helmet of Fig. 1, worn by a user, and a person treated by the user by a different controlling.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Fig. 1 depicts a helmet according to one embodiment of the invention.

A helmet 10A according to one embodiment of the invention includes proximity detectors 20A, 20B, 20C, etc., each directed to a different direction, for detecting a proximate person at that direction.

Helmet 10A further includes a sprinkler 16, for sprinkling tearing gas or other gas 18 or powder, controlled by a controller 28, receiving data, such as from proximity detectors 20A, 20B, 20C, etc.

Sprinkler 16 is rotatable by a motor 52, controlled by controller 28, for sprinkling to the direction, selected by controller 28.

Helmet 10A further includes a transparent cover 64, for protecting the user 12 from receiving the sprinkled gas 18.

Fig. 2 is an exemplary top view of two helmets of Fig. 1, each worn by a user, and two persons, treated by the users.

The typical user of helmet 10A is a cop during a public demonstration (protest). Proximity detector 20A of helmet 10A detects a small distance 54A, being regarded as proximity of a person 52A, and thus rotates sprinkler 16 there to ward and automatically triggers the sprinkling. Controller 28 (of Fig. l) receiving slightly different measurements from proximity detector 20A and proximity detector 20C, may determine accordingly the direction of person 52A. According to another embodiment, proximity detector 20A may rotate, and determine at the largest measurement, the direction of person 52A.

According to the example of Fig. 2, proximity detector 20A of helmet 10A discovers a slightly larger distance 54B to a person 52B, and may then operate a visual warning 34 theretoward such as by a laser 22, or a loudspeaker, for warning prior to sprinkling.

Proximity detector 20A or another detector of helmet 10A, such as an RF transceiver 24 (in Fig. l) is characterized to recognize helmet 10B. Even though proximity detector 20B of helmet 10A discovers a very small distance 54C of a user wearing helmet 10B, controller 28 of helmet 10A does not aim sprinkler 16 towards helmet 10B, due to recognizing it.

Fig. 3 is a top view of a helmet of Fig. 1, worn by a user, and a person treated by the user by a different controlling.

According to another embodiment, rather than automatically operating motor 52 and automatically triggering sprinkler 16 by proximity detector 20A, the user may manually control motor 52 and manually trigger sprinkler 16, via controller 28, by a remote control 40, which may be held by a hand 38 of the user, and may be manually operated thereby.

Remote control 40 may include operating buttons 44, and may wirelessly communicate with controller 28 by communication 42. Remote control 40 may be connected to a hand-held gun 38, such that aiming the barrel 46 of gun 38 towards person 52A automatically operates motor 52 to aim sprinkler 16 as well towards person 52A.
