The Jolt Sensor is an ingenious and potentially life-saving device that lets athletes know when they're at risk of receiving a concussion. Thankfully, the recent years have seen an upsurge of awareness of brain injuries and their life-long impact. This has led to the development of the Jolt Sensor, a device that clips onto athletes' headwear and vibrates when they receive a heavy knock.

This device is ideal for amateur athletes who don't have the luxury of dedicated team doctors to evaluate them every time they take a knock. It even comes with a companion app that lets athletes take cognitive tests and concussion checklists.

The developers of the Jolt Sensor have taken to Kickstarter to pursue crowdfunded monies to fund production. A pledge of $80 will get you hooked up with one Jolt Sensor next April if the campaign hits its fundraising goal.
