Fall-Protection Collar

hopefully prevent concussions...
  [vote for,

It occurs to me that a rapidly-inflatable coat collar with an accelerometer and gyroscope ought to be able to detect a condition in which one has become inadvertently horizontally oriented in midair and deploy to prevent one from smacking the back of one's head on ice and/or experiencing whiplash from a collar which is almost but not quite padded enough. That is all.

Does anyone have any tylenaofbsgaifvejakfbeholruav?

       I do not, but try smacking your big toe with a drilling hammer four or five times. It does wonders to relieve headache pain.

       Hmm, not a scarf idea.

       That hövding link is pretty neat. I think I've seen it before on the HB. I wonder if the crash sensing algorithm would allow it to work while walking.

       so what happens when you sneeze ?

       Might I suggest a manual switch as well, for dislodging people that fall asleep on you on the bus.

       Winter is cold enough to wear helmets and obviously there is some reasonable fear of head injury so why not winter helmets? A big soft warm padded helmet wouldn't be so bad, it would look no more cumbersome than a hood.

       Gooooozfrabba to you, Brother Alterother.

       [+] I like this. Considering how much technology we have these days that could possibly solve the "falling to death problem", Im surprised this isnt a very active area of research and engineering.
