BMW Motorrad reveals a futuristic bike with a lot of artificial intelligence
BMW Motorrad has come up with a concept motorbike which is very futuristic. The bike is provided with lot of AI and is a zero emission bike. It can self balance and they claim that you cannot fall over at all. The bike comes with a augmented headset which provides the rider information about speed, navigation and rear view mirrors. So is this the future?

Re: BMW Motorrad reveals a futuristic bike with a lot of artificial intelligence
What’s cool about the vision Next 100 is that some of the futuristic stuff which is supposedly going to be a common thing after 30 years or so, looks really cool! Especially the gesture control for indicators while turning, extensive use of carbon fibre and last but not the least, ZERO Emissions. Though the video doesn't reveal much on the technology that they are planning to use in making the bike stable, the boxer engine would definitely help in lowering the center of gravity and in turn the stability of the bike.
The bike comes with special riding equipment which includes a proper suit and a visor (inspired from Tron Legacy perhaps?). The lead designer mentions that there is no need for helmets! IMHO, that's a matter of concern. Wind and weather protection of the eyes is cool with the visor, but what about the hair and the mouth! Check out this video wherein the guy is without a helmet at a high speed.
Even with the ears, after riding for a decently long distance, the continuous wind noise does make you feel tired. Well, all of these are my concerns with the helmet. Though I'm guessing that the bike wouldn't be allowed to go that fast as the designer also mentioned that the Artificial intelligence would bring the bike at a safer speed.
