Helmet Sensor Device Calls For Help When You Crash

If your ride comes to an abrupt end in the city, chances are there will be some living soul calling EMTs quickly. But the same can’t be said if you venture out on some secluded nature path and have a violent encounter with a tree trunk. The ICEdot Crash Sensor is a motion detector that can sense when you’ve crashed, and even evaluate the severity of that crash. Once paired through Bluetooth with its related application, the device will sound an alarm and initiate a countdown. If you don’t deactivate the alarm within the specified time the app will contact your emergency numbers and relay information about your location, as well as how serious a condition you might be in and other critical medical details (diabetes, allergies, etc.). Hopefully this way you won’t bleed out in some ditch. We like it: it’s smart and can’t hit the market soon enough. Unfortunately, availability is slated for “sometime next year” at roughly $200, which isn’t cheap and is pretty far from now, but hey, better late than never.
