Amazon boss patents airbags for smartphones

When we first read this, we thought it was a hoax; Jeff Bezos and Amazon VP Greg Heart have filed a patent that could see airbag systems being deployed in smartphones and other delicate gadgetry. But not only is the patent the real-deal, it’s perhaps not as far fetched as it initially seems.

Filed in February, and still some way off from being rewarded, Bezos and Heart outline plans that could see airbags pop out of your phone before damaging impact occurs, or pressurised gas-streams to soften a fall.

To determine when an impact was imminent an accelerometer could be used, as well as lasers, while X-rays could figure out whether or not the surface in question was soft or hard.

It is, frankly, ridiculous to think of X-rays in a smartphone, but the concept of a gadget being able to protect itself is neither new nor impossible. Just think of laptop hard-drives and the fail-safe systems they employ to protect and park their heads before damaging drops and bumps.
