Personal Safety Devices

I see two threads of devices emerging. There are the devices that detect impacts and alert - like these - and the devices that provide personal protection - like airbags for ski avalanche protection. Between the two of them, devices that report accidents and those that protect us, our lives will become a little safer.

Yes, he mentioned an advance look that the ICEdot designers gave in a larger article on wearables.

This seems like a great idea. Kind of like OnStar for bikes. I think the idea of giving a delay before the emergency call is sent is fairly simple and elegant. My mind immediately went to false positives before I got to that part of the article.

Thanks so much for the story. Just to clarify, the device gets a month of battery life right now off of a single four hour charge.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
