Car gets airbag   on the outside

Knocking down a pedestrian is no laughing matter – and every single day, there will be a handful of pedestrians who are injured, or even worse, killed whenever a car runs into them. A bunch of Japanese researchers decided to do their bit in saving lives, that is by placing airbags on the outside of the car in order to protect people who walk around just in case there is an accident. Strangely, they have dubbed the system as iSave, where special body panels covered with inflatable membranes are touted to absorb the impact with a pedestrian, deflating rapidly after that to soften the blow. You can never be too careful, we say.
