Airbags in Helmet!! Does it works

Helmet with Airbag!!.
I just Googled the product and to my surprise yes it exits.Helmets with Airbag.But badly it is recommended for Cyclists as per the company says.

From the land of Safety & Volvo another company called Hovding has introduced a one of the best technology on the  Helmet safety. It could be one of the Out of the Box design challenging existing traditional helmets. Hövding started as a master’s thesis by the two founders Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin, who, at the time, were studying Industrial Design at the University of Lund.

It works similar to Airbags in Motorcycles and Cars.Though in real you will be wearing Jerkin extension,The air bag works as it detects a crash using pre-loaded Algorithm and surround the Head with a protective air Bag which is inflated using the Gas. Hovding also have option of adding a blackbox (*similar to one available in Aircraft's)which will record the Crash and same
will be used for detailed Crash Studies.

Seeing the demonstration from the website it clear that for Motorcycle speeds  60 MPH the same will not be effective and traditional helmets will continue do the job.
