Eject, Eject

It's the sort of thing you'd expect James Bond to wear: a jacket with a manually activated parachute that ejects backward using a propellant, "thereby removing the operator off the rear of the vehicle," according to the patent filing. The jacket, specifically intended for those who ride motorcycles or scooters, includes a padded design with an outer shell to help protect the wearer from impact or fire. The inventor is Corey Cooper of Mobile, Alabama.
