Crash-proof Motorcycle Technology [Video]
Here’s a video clip demonstrating new technology out of the Netherlands that could revolutionize motorcycle safety.

The TFKL system scans the environment to look for potential hazards. Any dangers are shown on a heads-up display that’s built into a motorcycle helmet visor.
Take a look at the video after the jump to see how it works. (Note: keep in mind that this IS still just a prototype!)
