Troy can see the future
There's one believer among us... in any case...
I'm going to get the 2pac hologram device and reprogram it to show the roadbook on the road ahead. F all this paper and S.
But I had the idea independent of this example. You all witnessed it!!
Who makes that?
I think they come FOC with any/most of the current "top of the range" Audi, Mercedes, and BMW autobahn-stormers.
It will be a sad day when we have heads up displays in the helmets.
Hogwild & I will never turn over to the dark side. Viva Paper road books VIVA!
..and then there's the Tripy digital roadbook concept silently sneaking up on us ;-)
I'm already a step beyond the heads-up display roadbook. Who wants junk getting in the way of your view? In 10 years when paper finally gives out, AUDIO will be the way to go! Just like in the cars where the codriver tells the driver where to go, we just replace the codriver with a black box. There's a reason I bought codawg.com a year ago, and am well along on the black box part! I'll be supporting paper as long as I can, but I'm putting one toe on the dark side because it's the smart thing to do. If they don't like the old game, beat them at their new game!
Curses.... foiled again.
Who's voice will you use for the black box audio voice over Scott...?
The Andy Grider edition: "Gaaaawdammit Orly... I said; keep off them poor bastards asses man... that's just not cool...assh¤le!"
The Michel Perin edition: "Carlos... I beleive we must go back... we miss the WeePee-eM... theese is no the correct piiiiiiiiiiiste... sacré bleuuuuuuu!" :eek1
The Johnny Campbell edition: "Well yeeeeeeh-hah! RG... I'll be over here in the fetal position with the belts tight... jus' holler if ya' need me!" :huh
or even the Jean Paul Cottret version:
(to the right of vehicle) BUMP!... bubble bubble bubble...
"ummmm... excusé moi... Stephane...? Deed you 'ear zat...?!" :huh
Audio has already been done in a nav Rallye years ago. ( the condo 750 2day rallye) I think it was about three years ago a guy called Paul Sinderberry ( Good rider too ) decided he didn't want to use paper one year. So he bought a digital recorder and dictated each days calls and just keeped pushing the play button everytime he needed a call via a remote button. he wasn't even going to put the roadbook holder on the bike but the organizers insisted he have one on. Not sure how this method turned out but I didn't see him use this again.
You guys are soo behind the times. I have already developed a roadbook to brain scanner. No paper no audio just brain power. Topo overlays in 3d for terrain interpretation, cautions leave a bad taste in your mouth and missed wp penalties are delivered via instant IQ deductions through the cortex. Currently working on sentinel intergration via kick in the butt sensation.
at the biv 2018
Indeed a TM, but not with a Yammie/GasGas front fairing kit on it
good work detective tehdutchie, mistery solved
Still using human power are you?
It was done in the Baja 1000 a while back also. But in Dakar it's not allowed. No extra electronic devices are allowed. So, it can't be done right now, at least for Dakar. But electronic display roadbooks are not allowed either. Times will change though.
What I have in mind for audio goes way beyond just a simple recording. Bikes need to be automatically warned that a car is coming up from behind. When you get way too far off course, it could tell you so the race organization doesn't have to go find you with a helicopter. You can have warnings play just before you hit a hazard, even if you don't press the "play" button. Actually, what I have in mind may not even have a play button, it would all be automatic. I'm not a big fan of all the possibilities with electronics because I think it takes away from some of the challenge and risks of navigating for yourself. But time will force changes, even if some of us don't like them.
Brilliant! Now today FEELS like the Dakar is on. I"m in a good mood now.
Could be tied to the odo, just like a paper roadbook. Then if you don't keep your odo in sync the messages don't get read to you at the right point. As far as the off-course warning, you could make it wait until you were WAY off course before it warned you, that would keep some of the challenge as you would still loose time with nav mistakes.
Not sure I would like audio, I like a quick glance at a picture. Not sure how many words it would take to properly describe some of the more complex tulip drawings. I don't even like having the voice turned on with my garmin gps in the car.
