Who Needs Training Wheels When You Have Ridiculously Elaborate Bicycle Simulators? [Simulators]

Back in my day, a Huffy and some training wheels were all I needed to learn how to ride a bike. Honda thinks today’s kids need something more—like a ridiculously elaborate and expensive bicycle simulator.

The idea is to teach kids how to bike safely by placing them in a variety of real-world scenarios like “going to school”, “going to the grocery store”, and the like. Targeted for driving schools and educational institutions, Japanese parents can spend some time with their child learning the basics without having to worry for their safety. After a few years, they just might be ready to go outside on a real bike with a helmet and a cocoon of bubble wrap on. [Far East Gizmos via Coolest Gadgets via DVICE]
