#973: BendBeam

Having recently been impressed with a laser system which shines on the road and delineates a safe zone around a bicycle, today’s invention is of a similar ilk.

It consists of a laser which is fitted to a motorcycle and which flicks backwards and forwards on the road ahead.


The laser is driven by a microcomputer on the bike which knows about the dynamics of the machine and its exact position on the road (via cameras which detect the central white line).

This allows the optimal racing line to be illuminated so that an inexperienced rider can steer the machine as would a professional racer (or a police rider).

Given that the average rider will be in the wrong gear to adopt this line most of the time, the onboard processor might be called upon to illuminate the best possible line ie -considering the current position, gear, speed etc.
