I still think the wearable air bag is impractical (a lot heavier, bulkier, and more expensive than a helmet), but some of the other devices, like the bike spike, the bitlock, and the Copenhagen wheel look promising.
I like the idea that if your bike is stolen, you have a fighting chance of getting it back and of the thieves getting punished.
Imagining variations on the bitlock for quick stops here and there, where with a bike is rendered unrideable until the owner unlocks it with his or her cellphone app.
