We're well aware of the whole cyclists-wanting-hood-airbags debacle, but the Toyota Gosei system is just ridiculous. Just look at it — it looks like something that would keep the Titanic afloat.


The two hood-mounted airbags would protect pedestrians' and cyclists' waists and heads (and maybe protect your windshield too); all of the internal airbags would protect damn near every square inch of your body. On top of all of this, the system also includes Toyota's pedestrian recognition system. At this point, you should probably just pull over and give your car to the pedestrian because Toyota seems to think that's the safer option. [Giz]
