I posted this in the 'Enjoys: long walks in the mountains' Cult forum but no reactions wich surprised me.. So here it is:
Black Diamond is working on a Jetforce powered airbag backpack. First info was on Wildsnow last week:
'Word is out on Black Diamond’s battery operated avalanche airbag backpack. Look for more details in this space, but for now PopSci has the scoop. In a one-page teaser they detail the Black Diamond “Jetforce” as having a two inch fan that spins at 60,000 RPM and fills the bag “instantly.” After three minutes the fan reverses to empty the airbag, and the rechargeable battery gives you 4 inflations so you can practice pulling the trigger, or if you’re not too lucky, repeat your latest avalanche ride.'
