Outdoor adventuring can be a great way to get in touch with your environment while still managing to break a healthy sweat in the process. However, the risks involved with any type of activity where a helmet is mandatory presents a certain level of risk. And if you’re alone out in the open country where service is limited and something happens, it’s devices like the PhiPAL that could end up saving your life.

Basically, each PhiPAL turns any helmet into a performance tracking device that can instantaneously detect accidents or abnormalities in your ride, immediately sending for help with your location geotagged. Everything from advanced AI accident detection to automatic emergency SOS software to performance tracking to breadcrumb trails are possible with the PhoPAL. It also works both on & off the grid as well as detects sudden deceleration that could suggest issues not directly resulting in a helmet collision, like a heart attack, fainting, or twisting an ankle. It allows you to manually send a request for help or will do so automatically if PhiPAL detects you’re are unconscious. Just like have your own personal caretaker with you at all times, which will certainly provide your mother with some piece of mind. It’s currently raising funds on Kickstarter and slated to retail at $149. [Purchase]
