They invented a Phantom Emergency Oxygen tank for deep sea divers and the robotic crawler for people that want to escape from earthquakes. Now there is a new product called the Snowpulse Life Bag that helps people that like to ski or snowboard from being injured.
The Snowpulse Life Bag is a personal airbag for skiers that fits in a backpack. It works very well in case there is an avalanche. The bag takes about 3 seconds to deflate and it gives the head and shoulders quite a bit of padding. It is not recommended to take more risks after wearing the Snowpulse. Currently the Life Bag is only available in Europe.
