Default New Product!

BBC - Newsbeat - Technology - Air bag jacket 'could save lives'

Might not be a bad idea, depending on how uncomfortable and expensive it is.

How long until it's mandatory?

Default Yeah, but what if you get run over?

The jacket is a great start, but what you really need is something that's going to protect you when that semi behind you can't stop in time. You get one of these devices inflated and you'll just bounce harmlessly away...boing...boing..boing...people pinball!

What time is it now?

These, or something similiar to it, were worn in the 125 class of motogp. I believe we've seen this here and similiar things elsewhere. It is only a matter of time...
