Airbag jackets for motorcycles are starting to get a lot more useful. Last week, motorcycle wear company Dainese announced a jacket, called the Misano 1000, that includes a built-in airbag and all of the tech necessary to automatically know when to deploy it. That last part is what’s important: other airbag jackets tend to rely on cues from sensors integrated with the bike itself, if not with an actual tether to the bike. The Misano 1000, on the other hand, seems to have acceleration sensors built into the jacket that can detect when a rider is in a collision or has been thrown from the bike. That should allow a rider who wears one of these to move from one motorcycle to another and bring the protection with them.
