The Dainese D-air motorcycle airbag

Airbags on motorcycles have been proposed and tested by several motorcycle companies, some versions put the airbag on the bike, others on the rider.

According to Boing Boing, motorcycle gear manufacturer Dainese has created the D-air safety system, fully equipped with airbags. The Dainese site features video of a the D-air in action.

Here is more video of the D-air airbags helping cushion the fall of another rider. While the airbags probably saved this rider from serious injury, that fall still looks like it left a mark.

The D-air system should be available to consumers around 2010, so make sure to ride extra carefully till then.
