"now we have a company, there's 25 employees, there's a helmet that's ready for starting manufacturing." if it passes a final safety test, they hope to have nfl and college athletes using the helmet as soon as the 2016 season. eventually they plan to make it available for athletes of all ages, in every sport that requires a helmet. so far vicis has raised 10 million dollars, with 500 thousand coming from the n-f-l they hope to start selling the zero-one helmets to the nfl next season. we're hearing of a few school closings at 1:15 in bedford and mount ayr.
