    Self driving bike

    I actually prefer a self driving car that will do shuttle runs, but until then...

    The bike will do a track stand for me Or at least very long manual

    Well played, Google. Well played.

    Beyond 0:37-0:39 where the bike starts shifting back and forth as if someone was on it accelerating, they do a pretty good job of trying to make it look legit, lol.

    All bikes are self driving because they naturally correct themselves when non-linear (meaning side to side) forces are applied to their path of direction. This is how a runaway bike becomes a runaway bike.

    Angular momentum and precession are interesting things. It is why it is amusing to see someone on cycling rollers stop pedaling to try and get their balance. Not only will they NOT get their balance, they are actually aiding their wipeout by reducing the force assisting in keeping them upright.

    I know it's just a spoof, but I wish they would hurry up with this. After a long day at work, it's really a pain to try to figure out the best line when biking over rough terrain. And when I get a call on my cell, it's just not safe to ride with one hand over the rough stuff.

    I realize there are a bunch of old grouches that will be against this. But self-driving with a motor would really make mountain biking less intimidating, and would get more people into the sport.
