Aargh! We're doomed...
That or Amazon.
Meh, would not buy, kickstand is on the wrong side.
(Pretty damn impressive though really).
But does it counter-steer?
Pre-programed with all Starbuck's locations.
If it turns, it does.
It's not Hi-Viz, so no one will even notice it.
Wonder how it will do on Grass Clippings?
40 seconds into the minute video...
So similar to automatic braking in cars.
It better have ABS or I'm not buying one.
And how does it push/pull on the handlebars and stand up on a gravel road?
I'll say it again, Why?
Who uses brakes?
It's either a) cool, b) creepy, or c) all of the above.
Now it just needs a little attached drone to fly into that Starbucks and pick up a latte. Though... hmm... how would it drink that latte?
Google beat them to it with a bicycle.
But can it lay 'erself down?
You know, to avoid an accident.
They will put a combat armed droids on it.
Why? They must have far more cash than they know what to do with. This is just stupidity.
I could mount my gopro to it and make ride videos without leaving the house.
I've got the perfect test track for that:
I just have a fundamental problem with this whole concept, like with self-parking and self-driving cars. I understand what drives the effort but seriously, how about training the rider/driver to handle the damned bike or car instead of taking the operator further and further away from that responsibility with the application of this admittedly amazing technology? As they say in early childhood education, you have to World-proof the child, not child-proof the World to help them be successful in life. No wonder so many people are absolutely helpless these days, our technology is hell-bent on making independent thought and survival skills obsolete.
I think I'm getting old... I still remember joyously riding motorcycles that had ZERO electronics on them; I was happy the frigging thing charged it's own battery and maybe had some lights.
