    The T-RAPS is the neck airbag system which (from what I could find on the net) is based on HitAir (SIDI is too for example).

    The HitAir has quite a lot informational about it including the test data and slow motion inflation videos.

    Unfortunately I can't neither confirm nor reject that Taichi's TRAPS is the same system.

    Additionally, it sounds like the inflation time of the airbag is pretty slow (0.5s jacket, 0.3 suit - strange why different, like the street is less dangerous?). Even HitAir has the inflation time of ~0.1 to 0.25s.

    It is somewhat concerning that there's almost no information about it on the net (only a few YouTube videos and forums discussions).

    Does anyone know any technical details about it? Any certifications, test data etc etc?
  2. Yeah, I should meet him some time soon and will ask of course.

    But it's a bit strange/suspicious that there is virtually no info about it on the net.
