Idiot is driving a bike with A: Consumer grade home Hard Disk drive (give it a few months heavy riding) and B: Totally silly, anti-girl huge ass camera attached to the helmet. If you really want to turn heads, get a high quality mini-camera (1 megapixel or more), that is melded to the helmet itself. Then buy a laptop hard drive and mount it on rubber. Wifi.

Live Xvid encoding. GPS system that tracks where your bike is, and has been going, globally. That project isn't halfway to l33t.

I was expecting something with a few dozen more processors, high res retina scanning head-up displays, more blinky things, more drives and maybe a few dozen antennae and some lasers or something.

Hell, my mountain bike has GPS, GPRS, FRS, MP3, 2M and WiFi. (Bluetooth is for suckers.) Err, it does when I'm wearing my laptop backpack.

Still coolish, but those extra safety features (though perhaps wise additions) like the Bosch airhorns and the bicycle-style handlebar mirror turned that street racer into the dorkus maxiumus mobile.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, really.

We're not jaded, we're just early adopters.
