This video, found on Two Wheels Blog, almost had me spraying coffee through my nose. I’m hoping it was a setup, but Germans typically lack the sense of humor necessary to pull off an elaborate prank like this.
To set the stage, a German news anchor is describing a new safety system designed for motorcyclists. The system, developed by TFKL Engineering, relies on a series of sensors and video cameras to communicate road hazards to a display in the rider’s helmet. The video was supposed to show a test of the safety system for the viewing audience.
Since neither the company (TFKL Engineering) nor the network (RTC) actually exist, I’m thinking this really is a gag. If any readers have additional info, I’d love to hear it.
