Airbag For People

Airbag for people Wish you can have wearable airbags like those in cars to break falls? Now you can.

The Japanese company Prop has developed an airbag system for the elderly to protect themselves from serious injury due to a fall.

The device, which wraps around the body and has a airbag behind the head and one around the hips, can sense when the wearer is falling and will inflate the airbags within 0.1 seconds.

The only problem? Like adult diapers, the elderly probably wouldn't want to be caught dead wearing one, if they have a choice.
