What do you think? Clever? Funny? Absurd? A little too spaceman-ish?

Perfect for lake jumping...that will bring you back to the surface fairly quickly and efficiently.

in the faceplant vid, the dummy still smacks their face on the ground. wonder if it would give bald guys like luc, sven and ballr a rug burn when it activates?

First of all, the chic above has worse things to worry about, like getting that rag dress stuck in her chain.

I think the bald celebs are safe. it's the mulletors that have to worry - I can easily seeing their coiffe preventing the device to deploying.

So what? IT just deploys when you lean over too much? Haha i would love to see someone wearing one down town and fall over at a stoplight to then have their airbag helmet deploy.

Metro cities should require all hipster fixie fruitcakes to wear one of these so I can run them over! HAHAHAHA AWESOME!

Hahahahahahaha!!! I totally agree with nwdhdad.


I think an airbag for the jewels would have helped a lot in the 1st clip. That last clip was awesome - thought the dummy was going to stick that stoppie! I'd guess it's intended for folks that keep the tires on the ground. Wouldn't it deploy every time you g'd out on a jump/berm?


Oh yeah...AIRHEAD!!!

Was anyone else thinkin that would make a sweet emergency deployable mullet?

Head to a party only to find out at the door it's a white trash party? No problem! Lean over, air mullet deploys, straighten back up, enter party in style.

did anyone else notice that these crashes are only at 10mph/16kph? I would like to see these movies re-done with 25mph speeds.... I think that's a little more realistic.
