While sleeping in this morning (with the extra hour I gained last night) I consider: If, at 2:00 AM I set my clock to 1:00 AM, what happens in 60 mins when 2:00 AM rolls back around?

The growth autonomous vehicles suggests that car drivers have lost of zeal of driving cars. And who can blame us; sitting in traffic on the 101; refereeing a backseat spate between siblings, parallel parking. None of these activities amount to the ZoomZoom we associate (or would like to associate) with driving. Car driving is more chore than a recreation. We like to envision the joy of ‘the open road’ experience as similiar sailing the open seas. However, the pothole congested reality of it is you experience is less sailboat, and more schoolfish..mirthlessly following the other fish..in a dull and narrow stream

Watch that biker cut between lanes like 660 horsepowered knife through butter. Freedom? Certainly more so than their quad-wheeled cousins. But is it safe? Well, there is a reason why helmets are required, and other protection strongly advised. Into this valley between safety and freedom, enters BMW’s vision of future of motorcycling.
BMW’s new concept motorcycle merges some driver assist safety features with a cool sleek sexy look, sure to turn heads.
Welcome the zero-emission, electric powered smartbike of the future; The Motorrad Vision Next 100. This bike’s smart systems will anticipate the road ahead and offer the rider guidance on what to do to manage incident avoidance and can even step in and take over if necessary. The self-balancing system is designed to prevent tip-over both while in motion as well as when standing still.
A ride this safe has little need for a helmet (what!?). Replacing that clunky piece of hardware is a lightweight visor.
This visor not only serves as a windshield, but also overlays important information on the HUD, like anticipated twists and turns, traffic, nearest Wendy’s.
This is a long way from drawing board to road, and no word yet on pricing.
Can Tron Litghtcycles really be that far behind?
“I want to go to there.”
The self-driving movement is coming to Amsterdam’s canals. Researchers are planning to launch “roboats” to traverse the Dutch capital’s canals next year, part of a five-year project to test the self-driving vessels’ ability to transport people and goods in a city whose area is about one-quarter water.
