BMW is set to change the experience of driving at slow speeds. The German car maker has developed an artificial G-force technology called the Force Injection Booster (FIB). This technology is accessible under speeds of 32kmph and gives the driver a sensation of a high speed driving by making clever use of electronics and climate control system. This system is available on Beemers starting from today.


When the FIB system is activated, it extracts kinetic energy from the car's engine and converts it in to positive G-forces which are then directed towards the passengers and driver from the AC vents with a mild electric current coursing through the front seats at the same time. This leads to a sensation which is similar to what is felt by a driver when operating a vehicle at high speeds, claims BMW. Mika Notbetru who is the head of BMW Innovation describes the FIB technology as "mind blowingly unbelievable."

This invention by the Munich based manufacturer can possibly lead to a decrease in road accidents which are caused by speeding or reckless driving, as adrenaline junkies can get their daily dose by making use of this system. Another of BMW's innovations, the AirNet- hair protection technology will make sure that your style quotient is not lowered in pursuit of performance.

BMW looks set to change the face of motoring with the introduction of a patented artificial G-force technology. BMW's new Force Injection Booster simulates the effects of spirited driving, even when commuting at slower speeds, to create a thrilling ride. When activated at speeds under 20mph, the Force Injection Booster (FIB) works by extracting kinetic energy from the car's engine and converting it into positive g-forces. These are then channelled directly at the driver and passengers through the air conditioning vents, while a mild electric current is delivered through the front seats, to simulate the same exhilarating feeling of driving at high speed*. This technology comes complete with the BMW AirNet®, the latest in hair protection technology, to ensure that occupant's don't have to compromise between personal style and driving performance. Professor Mika Notbetrü, Head of BMW Innovation, describes FIB technology as "Mind-blowingly unbelievable". The Force Injection Booster will be available across the BMW range from 1 April, 2014.
