Dennis Schmalzel February 6, 2012 04:23 PM I could totally see rolling off a cliff in this one. socalboomer February 6, 2012 05:01 PM Looks like it belongs in the old Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! LOL cachurro February 6, 2012 05:05 PM If an airbag is so dangerous inside a vehicle, imagine one of these exploding in a crowded street! Inviable outside a racing track. digi_owl February 6, 2012 05:16 PM How long faster this goes into production will someone forget to unplug before stepping off their bike? yrag February 6, 2012 07:51 PM Great. Best of luck getting out to market and into riders hands! Still, I wonder realistically, who\'s going to wear all that in hot and/or humid weather? Andrew Spinks February 6, 2012 09:58 PM \"The rider was found 3 kilometers down the road when he\'d finally stopped rolling - lucky not to have hit anything on the way!\" John Hogan February 6, 2012 10:56 PM @yrag - don\'t laugh but I reckon down the track motorbikes and scooters will have tiny little airconditioning units that pump cool air into a riders protective clothing. A bit like what astronauts have except cheap and light - maybe 3 kg tops. You can get a unit for light aircraft cockpits that weighs 13kg so imagine a unit that only needs to cool a few CFM of air ... bas February 6, 2012 11:03 PM In itself a good idea but like cachurro said there are other people. Apart from that, it seems as if the ball inflates upon impact. That leaves a rider prone to injuries from the first impact. There is enough technlology that would trigger inflation 0,05 seconds before impact, increasing protection. But.. as Murphy has told us over again.. yup, the rider was found 3 kilometers down the road, a bit dazed, but otherwise intact. The bike continued a kilometer before a tree got in its way. Get the idea? Joe Tomicki February 7, 2012 04:49 AM this could start a new extreme sport. lets see if we can live if I use my bubble suit to..... Dirk Scott February 7, 2012 07:39 AM The video is all very well...test conditions , no other traffic etc. However imagine this on a busy road with lots of trucks. The rider would be shunted from lane to lane like a ball in a pinball machine until some artic (semi) with 40 tons of steel on the back just crushed him. I have an alternative safety system which is already tried and tested and recommended by safety organisations, police and hospitals worldwide. Just slow down.
