Fender-benders may become a thing of the past if the Easpace Airbag ever goes from concept to reality. Design duo Da Wei Xing and Mei Yuan designed this airbag to mount onto the rear bumper of cars to reduce the damage caused in rear-end collisions.
The Easpace Airbag is stuck onto the rear-end of the car. The tag contains the airbag and a sensor that scans the area immediately behind the vehicle. If a car enters the scanner's space then the airbag is deployed to prevent damage and injuries.
You don't have to own a car to see just how awesome an external rear-end airbag would be. Cosmetic damage to cars costing thousands of dollars to repair could be eliminated. Physical injuries such as whiplash (yes, it is real) could also become a thing of the past. Fender-benders, your days are numbered.
