    The title of this thread made me think of The Emperor's New Clothes. But seriously those things are going to lead to lawsuits. icon_confused.gif

    Anything can lead to a lawsuit...

    I wonder if it will make it more difficult to enforce the no helmet laws.

    It is basically an air bag for your head. I think it is probably a good alternative for bicycles....I don't know if it would be strong enough for motorcycles.

    And then I wonder if long hair, a backpack, or a hat could stop it?

    Wearing an airbag around your neck while biking? Oh that sounds comfortable. This should go over really well in Florida.

    I can't imagine even wearing this as just a commuter. Even when I've just got a camelbak on, I sweat more under the straps.

    At least a helmet is vented.

    Next some genius will come up with an ass airbag for when you fall on your ass. They'll sell it as a medical device for preventing hip damage in old age.

    How about a shoulder airbag for when the passenger next to your plane seat falls asleep on you. It automatically inflates to make a pillow for him.

    Or the condom air bag. I've no idea what that one does. Use your imaginations.
