BMW turns your car into a coach

As an official sponsor of the London 2012 Olympics, BMW has developed a device to help athletes get the most out of their training time.

Using a combination of BMW’s ConnectedDrive and surround view cameras mounted to the bodywork, the driverless Running Coach feature allows your car to follow you – at a safe distance – while you hit the streets. For added motivation a set of integrated exterior speakers boom out words of encouragement, while the Lock Out Logistics feature ensures that no sneaky shortcuts are taken.

“It’s a car gym but not as we know it,” said BMW’s Head of Futile Innovations, Alvin Alaff. And, if you believe a single word of this article, we urge you to seek immediate psychiatric attention.
