Volvo Launches Pedestrian Airbags!

Filed under: Tech TalkScience!

PEdestrian Air Bag Launch

People INSIDE the cars aren't the only worry anymore for Volvo!

The clever car makers are launching their new airbag system that actually protects pedestrians if they're struck by the vehicle!

The new system is available in the 2013 V40 model, and if you look at the pic (above), you'll see that it's under the hood. It will inflate in a few hundredths of a second to cover around a third of the windshield.

It's only launched at speeds between 12 to 31 mph.

Unfortunately there are unavoidable situations where this would need to deploy, but we'd much rather people drive cautiously than to ever need to rely on this!

The system's seven sensors are located at the front of the vehicle. They can actually detect legs — and if they detect them, everything launches automatically!

Science!

The DeLorean is now a bike!

Yeah yeah, it doesn't have the super cool doors, flux capacitor, or really the ability to go 88 mph, but still — it's a DeLorean bike! And that's cool!

Filed under: Etc.Tech TalkScience!

Everyone, we'd like you to meet the Sea Lion.

Sea Lion, meet everyone.

Ha!

Check it out — this car can transition into a speed boat IN SECONDS.

Not only that, but it's the fastest land-speed amphibious car. Meaning, it goes 125 mph on land and a whopping 60 mph in water — which is extremely fast and has earned it some records!

SO COOL!

Watch the video (above) to see it in action!!

Ricardo Speeding Ticket

Uh-oh!

Looks like this WWE star had a smack-down himself — from the cops who weren't too pleased that he was speeding on his way to work!

It's true, Ricardo Rodriguez got a ticket on the way to WWE RAW!

The thing is this, though: it wasn't just your average speeding ticket.

Boxing will whip your butt into shape pretty quick, but FitPerez reader Janis wrote Alex Brenes to ask:

Hello Mr Brenes,

What are the fitness components in boxing?

According to Alex:

Janis, that's and easy one,all of them, Strenght (hit harder), speed (hit and move faster), endurance (hit harder, faster and move longer), agility (don't get hit and hit some body), coordination (don't be clumsy so you can do it right), nutrition (provide your body the fuel needed to perfom to the maximum). Done right like we do at DeLaBBC, boxing is one of the most complete ways to get in the best shape of your life!

Got more questions? Tweet Alex @ABrenesBoxing and check out his boxing gym or write to Tips@FitPerez.com for more answers!

Older Men Who Walk Three Miles Per Hour Outrun Death…Literally!

Filed under: Super SeniorsHealth

At last, we know how fast the Grim Reapers runs walks!

A study comparing the walking speeds of elderly men found the faster a man walk, longer he lives.

The study was done over five years surveying 1,700 Australian men aged 70+.

266 died. With their deaths, the researchers were able to estimate the Grim Reaper's speed.

The Grim Reaper catches you if you walk less 1.8 miles an hour!

Admittedly, the study was tongue in cheek.

But it did find that older men who walk at least three MPH live longer.
