Crash-proof Motorcycle Technology [Video]
Here’s a video clip demonstrating new technology out of the Netherlands that could revolutionize motorcycle safety.
Developed by a company called TFKL Engineering, the technology is somewhat similar to Volvo’s pedestrian detection system that scans the area around the vehicle for anything that might cause an accident.
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!)

Dennis has been a part of the Motorcycle.com team since 2008, and through his tenure, has developed a firm grasp of industry trends, and a solid sense of what's to come. A bloodhound when it comes to tracking information on new motorcycles, if there's a new model on the horizon, you'll probably hear about it from him first.
