Most reported NFL concussions occur on pass plays

  Most reported NFL concussions occur on pass plays NEW YORK _ A video review of 459 reported concussions sustained during the past two NFL seasons has found far more occurred on passing plays than any other plays. Yet quarterbacks ranked at the bottom of the list, ahead of only kickers, having suffered 5 per cent of those concussions. Of course, only one quarterback is on the field at a time. Positions in which multiple players are in action at the same time, cornerback and wide receiver, led the list of frequency at 22 per cent and 15 per cent, respectively.

To help, a startup called Cosmo Connected is working on a smart light that clips onto the back of your helmet. Eight LEDs — four red, four yellow — are positioned in an oval shape. By default, they're set to an "always-on" position so that you're clearly visible in the dark. An accelerometer inside will know when you're braking, however, and warn fellow cyclists, drivers and pedestrians with a more intense light.

Here, you can trigger a flashing "emergency alert" or convey left and right signals by mashing the screen or pressing the company's optional, handlebar-mounted remote control. It will also be possible to enter your journey beforehand and trigger turn signals automatically via GPS. Finally, Cosmo Connected says the accelerometer can double as a fall detector, notifying friends and family in the event of an accident. All of these features are free, though an optional service (it's not clear if you'll have to pay for this, however) can be set up to notify emergency responders too.

The Cosmo Bike light will launch in September for $60.
