    Default Airbag for Cyclists or Motorcyclist

    http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/?p=99820?src=dayp

    I thought i'd put this video here because this could be a real life saver here in the DR for anyone who cycles in the DR or commutes around on a scooter or motorcycle:

    I simply love bicycling around Las Terrenas, and I finally decided wearing a helmet, after all these years... I'll use it on my moped too...

    What a wonderful invention by those smart Swedes! Thanks for sharing! I'm going to order one for my GF.

    It would be good to attach to a backpack so you don't forget it..

    Somehow I do not see this device catching on even among our most safety conscious Dominicans.

    I expect they will sell one or two.

    In the world.

    Seems to me that a DOT approved helmet would do the job just as well. What would be really awesome is if you could manufacture motorcycle jackets with built in airbags. But then, dominicans don't wear jackets or helmets.

    But I'd buy one.

    The DR is the last country in the world that would use such a device even if you handed them out for free. So, Frank, being an extreme safety minded motorcyclist you have placed your order? How about a photo of you wearing the device?
