The more the world of wearables expands the more I really feel like we're living in the future. This one, made specifically for athletes who play high impact sports could save lives with real time feedback...

"The Protxx sensor is basically a very sensitive seismometer for the brain, and it has 2 functions. As a head impact dosimeter, it puts the functionality of an MRI machine behind each athlete’s ear, warning when neural tissue deformations due to cumulative sub-concussive head impacts approach levels that could lead to permanent damage."-source

I mean damn science! Things are really progressing, and if it acts as a digital preventative helmet to keep some of these athletes safe why not! What a cool idea.
