airbags

Or, “Yes, but was he wearing his airbag?” All joking aside, this technology is pretty amazing. Who ever thought that airbags could be adapted for motorcycles. Is it just a matter or time before this trickles down to skateparks? These things aren’t always as useful as the promise is. Remember the space age polymer that would harden on impact? It is being used in beanies for snowboarding as a potential helmet replacement, among other things. I talked to an individual who works for a certain Northwest based sporting goods manufacturer who says that most real world tests had results where the application turned out to be essentially worthless due to outside factors. Who cares? I just want to watch a video of a guy on a motorcycle crashing with airbags coming out of his helmet!
