Default Smash Labs Boat Ejector Seat.

Anyone else see this? Was an interesting attempt at ejecting a person prior to an impact. The guys from Gieco were involved as well. I thought it was very impractical the way the test was set up but was fun to watch anyhow. It was just on about 15 min ago. I am sure it will repeate a few times.

Scott for me it was on Planet Green (Fios). I just did a search for the show and it says it will be on again Feb. 6 at 7pm and again on the 7th at 3am and again on the 7th at 11am. Hope that helps.

great idea..but don't see how it would be praticle. your doing 150+ you blow over, roll etc..by the time you have realised what ishappening, make the decision to bail, push the button and the system activates (and we are only taking a second or two) who knows where you are getting launched too?
