According to Dainese the development of the decision-making hardware and software alone required three years, with data gleaned from trials used to perfect the trigger signal algorithm which decides when to deploy the gas inflated airbag.

All the impact areas are still hitting the ground! All I see is something made for prevent whiplash or something.

Ya, but it could also prevent a broken collarbone/neck etc...not to mention that your helmet never hits the ground, so less chance of a concussion as well.
