I wanted to share this because it is a subject very close to my heart (or where my heart should be).
This is of course motorcycles – I’ve been into motorcycles since a very young age – And although mine is tucked up in a garage 60 miles away I’m still very much in touch with the online biking community. Recently a member of a forum I’m a member of announced that he had been on TV with his invention – The Riderscan
Essentially the Riderscan allows the rider of a motorcycle to have an almost 180 degree view around him – And a complete one at that – No blind spots without having to physically look behind him to check (these are reffered to as “Life savers” for very good reason).
So what amazing technology made this possible?
No seriously. The creator had his “Eureka!” moment while washing pots in his kitchen, took said pot outside and placed it on his motorcycle – And bang, potentially millions of lives saved.
So there you have it – A life saving design that has never been thought of before with technology older than the sun itself. Beautiful – Stephen Hunter – I salute you.
This Post would not be complete without a little peek at my baby – Like a proud father.
