A new airbag concept for motorcyclists called the Safety Sphere takes what can only be described as an all-encompassing approach to motorcycle safety
Motorcycle News reports that the Safety Sphere inflates in 0.05 seconds
But why do they call it the Safety Sphere?
The Safety Sphere has two layers, effectively surrounding the rider with airbag in the event of an accident
Airbags for motorcyclists, whether built into the vehicle (a la Honda) or the rider's apparel (like the D-Air, Spidi and Hit-Air), are not a new idea. But Canadian inventor Rejean Neron's Safety Sphere concept has to be the most, well, all-encompassing of those we've seen. Described as an "inflatable crash garment for non-enclosed vehicle riders", Safety Sphere isn't so much built into the rider's suit as it is the rider's suit. In the event of an accident, the intended results are nothing if not dramatic, as the CG video promo ably illustrates.
