Instead of air bags which could suffocate someone, why not have pneumatic boxing gloves built in. These could also be operated manually so if the kids are getting too rowdy in the back seat, well you get the picture. In an accident, there is the possibility that someone could suffocate. [Disclaimer-It has happened and I have respect for those who have lost loved ones] With the Air Glove you could get knocked out which would leave you relaxed and without memory of the accident other than a bloody/broken nose. Besides, Air bags are for sissies.

       you could customise it so that it worked like the buttons for electric windows (passenger, left-back-seat, right-back-seat)   

       fantastic! a couple of deft fingerings and you can smack the lot of 'em.

       Airbags are designed not to suffocate anybody. They deflate virtually instantaneously, and are stiff enough you can't inhale them. If someone did suffocate, it was in some kind of freak accident. Much more dangerous is the explosive force of the airbags themselves.

       Wussy fender-benders would knock the stupid out of all passengers inside, but I guess that would make for a good story. Maybe this glove could flip off other cars and do laundry, too. Why, I'll bet it could even tie your shoes for you!
