Discussion Summary

Reminded that at a prior meeting she had mentioned the idea of a fall-detecting belt with built in airbag for protection, Marilyn gets an update on just such a product  and the Explorers discuss some new ideas.

The conversation segues into some suggestions for improving on the concept, and adds some cross pollination from a recent visit by an eyewear developer working on "wearables in eyeglasses".

The company in question, ActiveProtect, is listed in our database, see section below. The image is their concept from their website.
