Pitch your cycling helmet...it's time for the "collar"
Just when you thought you'd seen it all...how about an air bag for your head!
Check out this CNN report on the latest in cycling head gear. You have to get past the supermodel and envision yourself with the stylish neck collar; and when you take that next trip over the bars, this rig is supposed to track your body motion, understand that you're into crash mode, and inflate in 1/10 of a second.
I'm not sure I'd transition into this product, based on its hefty projected price of $600. But who am I to thwart technological progress? When you get yours, let me know how it works.
