This one got my attention this morning. A crash sensor that uses your smart phone and an APP to alert people to the fact that you have hit the deck. This from their site…
Your helmet can only go so far. ICEdot takes your protection farther.
The Crash Sensor is a slim device that will mount as an aftermarket device onto any helmet. When paired with the ICEdot app on a smart phone, the system is able to detect motion, changes in forces and impacts.
In the event of an impact, the device sends critical data to the app which sounds an alarm and initiates an emergency countdown. Unless the countdown clock is stopped, the app will then notify your emergency contacts and send GPS coordinates of the incident so that appropriate follow up actions can be taken.
Cycling, skiing, backcountry travel, team sports, and motor sports all involve significant risks. Be Known when it counts with the new ICEdot Crash Sensor.
They also have an interesting video showing how it all works.
Seems like a clever initiative. More at their site http://icedot.org/site/
