The cyclist airbag is a wheely good idea
So the good news is that this airbag for cyclists - a Swedish invention for a university thesis - protects the head in the instance of traffic accidents and various bicycle blunders. The device was not only tested on dummies, but stunt men and women too. Lucky, lucky people.
The bad news? As the first test shows, your spine will still be shattered in seventeen different places. But hey, nurses can always set your back in a plaster cast, whereas there's not much they can do to fix your brain when it's already leaking out your ears.
