Airbagvest Jacket

Has anybody seen this before? It's a really ingenious idea but I wonder if it works as well as it claims. It looks pretty badass although the price is about $580-600 for the standard jackets. Sure does look like it will keep you safe though.

Any videos that show the vest actually helps absorb the impact and is not just a flotation device?
