This is pretty cool, but almost seems a bit "Big Brother-ish". {shudders}

For the Luddites amongst us, there's another low-tech solution:

Medical Information Data Systems, Inc.

Fill in your info with a pencil, fold neatly per the instructions, slip it in the pouch, tuck in the flap, then peel & stick!

All my helmets have one.

They also work great as "Ice-Breakers" for other riders you may happen to meet (I bought a few dozen, carry with, and give them out to people I meet).

You never know, Ya' know?

(besides, I'm REALLY hard on crap like this - I go through PDAs, Jump Drives, and Cell Phones like they were the cheap, Chinese-made toys they are...........)

If your info is written in pencil then no one needs a laptop to read it.

Reminds me of the millions that NASA spent on a pen that would write in space.

Those them lil' black clicky-pens that say "Property of U.S. Government" on them?

Not that I would know anything about such an animal, as I've never worked (directly!) for the Gub'mint..........
