Google Patented A Sticky Car Hood That Traps Pedestrians Like Flies To Keep Them Safe

Google loves to brag about how its self-driving cars and their ability to save lives by being really good at not crashing into things. But crashes do still happen, and when they do, Google apparently has a backup plan: human flypaper.

A Cyclist's Track Stand Befuddled One Of Google's Self-Driving Cars

It’s usually easy for our human brains to predict how any given car, pedestrian or cyclist is going to act, but computers must be programmed to “understand” all of our varying behaviours on the road. The latest thing perplexing Google’s self-driving cars (and thereby entertaining us)? A simple track stand, according to Washington Post’s Matt McFarland.

Watching These Cyclists Spin Around In Light Suits Is So Mesmerising

It’s like a trippy and visually spectacular 3D kaleidoscope or something. The cyclists are wearing a LED light suit that can change colours and the flash-rate and the luminosity so that they can look completely different while they spin around in carefully choreographed moves.

Insane Cyclists In Budapest Risking Their Lives Between Trams

Cyclists in Budapest, Hungary, can be as insane as in the rest of the world. Or even a bit more, judging from this video in which two guys — one from New York, truth be told — risk their lives going through the thin trenches crated by running trams.

Can Saying 'People On Bikes' Instead Of 'Cyclists' Make Biking Safer?

A few years ago, I bought a bright orange city bike, which I chose because it allowed me to sit up as I rode. A few times a week, I wear my regular clothes — mostly dresses — to go to meetings, run errands or ride on the bike path by my house. I don’t own any padded shorts. What would you call me?

Cyclist Argues Against Police Fine In Slapstick Cycle-Lane Video

Perhaps throwing a cyclists’ yellow card on cars obstructing the bicycle lane would’ve been a less aggressive way to go about his complaint, but then we wouldn’t get to see this cyclist, Casey Neistat, make such a fool of himself.

If You're A Cyclist, Throw This Magnet At The Next Car Who Endangers Your Life

It’s dangerous riding a bike in the city—crazy drivers swerving in and out can seriously hurt you. So the next time a crazy jerk cuts you off and almost kills you, throw this magnetic yellow card at his car.

Traffic Loop Sensor Trigger For Bikes Gets You More Green Lights

Those traffic loop sensors embedded at stop lights to detect the presence of a car have always provided fodder for vehicular snake oil vendors: I’ve seen products promising to eliminate red lights ONCE AND FOR ALL by ingeniously fooling a mysterious (but gullible, apparently) system hidden below the pavement. While false promises abound, this patent for bicycles seems to be more on the legit side, and could result in more carefree whizzing through intersections than previously allowed.

Hindsight Cyclist Glasses Are Eyes in The Back of Your Head, Kinda

The Nike Hindsight cyclist’s glasses from designer Billy May (we loved his Torn lights before) are designed to do one simple thing: stop cyclists from getting hurt on the roads. At the extended side of each lens is a carefully arranged high-power Fresnel lens that captures the view to the sides of the wearer’s head, and sends it into the peripheral vision. galleryPost('hindsight', 3, '');
