Interesting twist on helmet safety features...
“The WIG will be activated when it is buckled on,” says Spencer. “If you fall and hit your head, the helmet will detect that and beep for a minute or so. If you don’t turn it off, WIG sends for help, either directly to 911 or to a third-party service that relays the emergency call to 911. Included with the message will be a GPS location giving your geographical coordinates so the emergency team knows precisely where you are.”
It would seem to me that few accidents are in places where others aren't around to help. I would hope that they would anyway. I can't imagine this taking off for that reason.
