VIDEO: YAMAHA ALL-ELECTRIC, SEMI-AUTONOMOUS MOTOR, THE MOTOROIDDate: 2017-11-15
Kando is a Japanese word for the simultaneous feelings of deep satisfaction and intense excitement that we experience when we encounter something of exceptional value.
In order to create new experiences of Kando, this experimental proof-of-concept model employs artificial intelligence and explores creating new forms of personal mobility in which the rider resonates harmoniously with the machine.
MOTOROiD's development concept was an "unleashed prototype", it's capable of recognizing its owner and interacting in other capacities – like a living creature. By undertaking these kinds of development challenges, Yamaha is aiming to acquire technology for creating new value for their customers.
The frame of the bike-like design traces the cuts made to create it, the body is marked with un-bandaged scars here and there, and the tires are worn to the point that even the tread grooves are nearly gone.
The machine emits a tremendous presence like a prototype that was just brought in straight after numerous hard-run track tests. What you can get from a glimpse of MOTOROiD is the present and the future of Yamaha Design.
