This smart cycle vest cushioned my fall at CES (but not my dignity)

Gadgets
Hey guys, I am here in Tech West and you're probably wondering what I'm doing on a bicycle in the middle of such a big crowd. Not only am I just really sick of using my feet but I'm here to test out a smart cycle vest. Now, I'm in Eureka Part and really obviously great at cycling. I'm in Eureka Park which is the start of section of Tech West downstairs And it's where all the different countries have start ups and we have the French section here. And we're here with [UNKNOWN]. Now they have a smart cycle vest designed to inflate and protect you from falls. It's incredibly clever technology and probably something that I need when I'm walking around. Inside you've got a gas canister that inflates the entire chamber around the best. So the front The neck and the back will all inflate as soon as you fall. How does it know you're going to fall? Well there's a sensor down in the bike here with an accelerometer inside that detects movement of the bike. And inside the vest there's a GPS, gyroscope,and accelerometer that will all detect when you're about to fall. It can detect that time in about 80 milliseconds The inflation of the jacket, well that's a fraction of a second as well. That takes no time and you barely notice until suddenly you're on the ground and it's inflated. The whole thing starts up when you zip it up, select this. They're not only doing things for bikes, they're doing things for horse riders or motorcyclists. So motor cyclists need a lot of protection when fall quickly. And you remember last year we also saw the hip pads from Hilaire that is designed to detect falls in elderly people and protect their hips. Different technologies are quite break them and were all different designs. We are expecting to see this this year for about $650. And you only need the canisters inside filled with CO2 to make sure that your hip still puff up. I'm gonna try it out. I'm not so sure about this. You should know that I feel close to falling over on the CES show floor at any given time, so I'm gonna take a loop. [BLANK_AUDIO] Out of my way. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right. [SOUND] [BLANK_AUDIO] [SOUND] No. [SOUND] Wow. [LAUGH] [LAUGH] I can't move my neck. No, my back. It doesn't hurt. It's a little pop. I feel really protected. I'm gonna. It's fine. Always wear a helmet kids. I'm a just take a nap on my little pillow here.
